Clinical Evidence Online access is provided free or at greatly reduced rates to developing countries (commenced June 2002). This is part of an initiative spearheaded by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Six of the world's leading medical publishers have joined forces in a unique venture to enable more than 100 of the poorest countries in the world to access vital scientific information in an affordable way through the internet. The breakthrough was announced in a press release from the WHO in 2001. Further coverage and comment can be seen in the BMJ.
