African Hospital Libraries

Charity description

African Hospital Libraries logo
Our vision is to facilitate access to clear, relevant, up-to-date, life-saving health information for all clinicians, regardless of geographical location, reliable electricity supply, or technology. Disseminating accurate health information, African Hospital Libraries will contribute to quality patient care, continuing professional development, and health systems strengthening.

In collaboration with the Hospital Management Teams, AHL established and actively supports hospital libraries in Makeni (est. 2013) and Bo (est. 2014) Government Hospitals in Sierra Leone, with a new third library due to open in Kenema Government Hospital in July 2018. We employ four members of AHL staff in Sierra Leone and have a board of five (unpaid) trustees in the UK.
AHL wants to upgrade the current small libraries at Makeni and Bo Government Hospitals to larger Resource Centres which will better serve the local health workforce by providing study space, toilet facilities and electronic and internet facilities. We are also working to expand the AHL library model to include other health facilities.
