As a not-for-profit charitable organisation, we communicate and promote knowledge of food and health in order to stimulate global education, research, and vocational training for the future benefit of humanity.
We offer information to the following organisations, which share our commitment to improving knowledge in the developing world.
Working with major information providers, including IFIS, the AGORA program, led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), provides public institutions in developing countries with free access to an outstanding digital library collection in the fields of food, agriculture, environmental science, and related social sciences.
Through the HINARI Access to Research in Health Programme set up by the World Health Organization (WHO), publishers, including IFIS, provide free access to thousands of biomedical and related social sciences journals, e-books, and other information resources, for the use of health workers and researchers in not-for-profit institutions in developing countries.
IFIS are also part of ALPSP's 'Partnership Project' through our support of Polish Agricultural Universities, including the University of Life Sciences in Poznań, Warsaw University of Life Sciences - SGGW, and Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences. This initiative provides scholarly publishers in developing countries with the opportunity to be ALPSP members and receive one print copy of, and online access to, Learned Publishing at a specially reduced membership fee.
