Produced by the Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information, a specialized centre of the World Health Organization, this resource is an index of articles, monographs and theses, with full text for many documents. The interface is available in English (linked to here), Spanish, and Portugese. The primary search allows basic keyword searching as well as title, author and subject keyword searching, or a Boolean combination of several individual fields using the "iAH" form. You can also browse by topic or by title for various document types. This is a freely available resource, added to the Laurier Library collection given student requirements.
