The Digital Health Library uses an integrated search engine from MedHand International that combines Oxford hand books, Dynamed, evidence-based journal derived medical information and the Comprehensive Advanced Life Support manual of emergency care guidelines.

The physicians will be instrumental in the development and implementation of the Digital Health Library, which will help to improve healthcare in South Sudan and in Africa in general. The project has been funded by Grand Challenges, Canada.
