HINARI is the Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative. It was set up by the World Health Organization (WHO) and major publishers to enable developing countries to access collections of biomedical and health literature. There are over 3750 journal titles available to health institutions in 113 countries.

The HINARI program has recently been reviewed and the publishers involved have committed to continuing with it until at least 2015.


The HINARI Project began in January 2002 with around 1,500 journals from six major publishers: Blackwell, Elsevier Science, the Harcourt Worldwide STM Group, Wolters Kluwer International Health & Science, Springer Verlag and John Wiley.

Highwire Press participates in HINARI.


Access to HINARI was initially open to ‘Band 1’ countries, which are those defined by 2001 World Bank figures as having GNP per capita below $1000. These countries are eligible for free access to the resources. The following year a second band of countries was introduced. Institutions in ‘Band 2’ countries, those with GNP per capita between $1000–$3000, pay a fee of $1000 per year per institution, although some of the HINARI resources are also free to these institutions.


Some large, emerging countries including India, Pakistan, Indonesia and China are excluded by most publishers as these markets represent important parts of many publishers' business plans.[1][2]
