P124 - VHL History of Health and Medicine - new initiatives

It presents the initiatives included in the VHL – History of Health and Medicine, with special emphasis on the Bibliographic Collectanea on the History of Health and Medicine in Peru, as a result of the cooperation established with the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, and the cooperation settled with the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba,  Argentina, that aims at assembling History of Health information provided by Argentinean institutions, contributing thus to this section of the VHL. These cooperations established led to the translation of the site of VHL-History of Health and Medicine into Spanish. The poster describes also another cooperation settled down, this time with ABEM- Associação Brasileira de Educação Médica and reports the inclusion of a new product on the site, that provides full-text theses presented to the Graduation Program on the History of the Health Sciences , coordinated by Casa de Oswaldo Cruz-FIOCRUZ.
