Talent and drive are abundant in Eritrea, but poor infrastructure--low bandwidth, few computers, books or trained librarians--prevent students, researchers, doctors and nurses from getting the information they need. The result is a widespread desire for information to support education and clinical care. In 2009, the Elsevier Foundation awarded the GWU Medical Center Training project a $50,000 grant to assess how Eritrea's health libraries can create a state-of-the art medical library and support graduate medical program to rebuild the growing ranks of medical professionals in Eritrea.- GWU's recommendations address training, bandwidth, textbook shortages, distance learning as well as maximizing national collaboration, establishing international library networks and developing world partnerships.
