about MEDBOX

MEDBOX is an innovative online library aimed at improving the quality of healthcare in humanitarian action, worldwide.  

MEDBOX is initiated and operated by the Medical Mission Institute (www.medmissio.de) and is meanwhile supported by international agencies and scientific institutions active in humanitarian assistance and development.

MEDBOX collates the increasing number of professional guidelines, textbooks and practical documents on health action available online today and brings these into the hands of humanitarian aid workers: when they need it, where they need it. MEDBOX is constantly updated. We are keen to receiving more documents, training materials and presentations relevant to improve the quality of health action! Your feedback is valuable to us, so do get in touch if you have something you'd like to share with us to improve on, and maximize, our collaborative space. Please send your comments to: info@medbox.org

MEDBOX is an independent platform providing information free of charge. We are dependent on your financial support for the continuous management and quality assurance of the website. Please support us to continue this project!

Zika Toolbox

The Zika Virus outbreak currently circulating in the Region of the Americas raises many questions in both health care workers and the general public. To find the appropriate document among the great number of online resources requires time and skills and is therefore delaying rapid actions in this public health emergency.

The ZIKA TOOLBOX (www.zikavirusbox.org) aims at collating all relevant documents for different audiences: From general public to health care professionals to public health authorities. The structured sitemap allows easy browsing of the most important topics and by using the search function it is also possible to find the desired documents in a few clicks. Local languages and national guidelines allow the direct use of documents in the affected communities.
