International Workshop on Health Information Literacy
INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON HEALTH INFORMATION LITERACY 2011
Train the trainers on health information literacy
Workshop Dates: 27 - 30 July 2011
The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) is the leading international body that represents the interests of library and information services and their users. It is the global voice of the library and information profession. IFLA has several 'core activities', one of which is Action for Development through Libraries (ALP).
The Action for Development through Libraries (ALP) programme is based at IFLA Headquarters. ALP has an emphasis on training and collaboration with IFLA’s core activities, sections and regional/language offices.
ALP is the primary vehicle for delivering training based on policy and guidelines developed by IFLA’s core activities or sections. The focus for ALP projects is professional priorities for the development of the library and information profession that are linked to IFLA’s strategic priorities.
There is a preference for projects based on IFLA’s training packages and that build sustainability and capability in local library communities in developing countries or emerging economies around the world. IFLA’s training packages are customisable, flexible in content and delivery, and adaptable to meet the needs of different projects, and countries.
Under this mission and strategy of IFLA, East West University Bangladesh, (EWU) has been selected to host this international workshop for the first time in Bangladesh.
