About 2/2: Source is a collaborative venture of the Centre for International Health and Development (formerly CICH), a department within an academic institution; Healthlink Worldwide, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) working to strengthen information and communication on health and disability; Handicap International, a disability and development NGO; and Exchange, a networking and learning programme on health communications for development.

Source has been formed from a merger of CICH’s and Healthlink Worldwide’s resource centres.

The combined information support centre is designed to meet the information needs of individuals and organisations working in health, disability and development worldwide. These include health workers, researchers and students, nongovernmental and governmental organisations, and disabled people’s organisations.

Source has a unique collection of around 25,000 health and disability information resources. These include books, journals, manuals, reports, posters, CD-ROMs, websites and organisations. Many materials are from developing countries and include both published and unpublished literature not readily available elsewhere in the UK..
