Wolters Kluwer explores the role of Open Medicine in achieving global health equity

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically drove home the importance of global health equity. In a world where air travel essentially renders the world borderless, it is futile to focus solely on regional or national interests.

This position paper from Wolters Kluwer, which features input from thought leaders in the field of medicine, examines the role of Open Medicine in driving global health equity.

Topics discussed in this paper include the role played by these three main pillars of Open Medicine:
  • Open access to scholarly publications
  • Open data sharing
  • Open source/open code
