Doctors, hospitals, healthcare institutions, and medical relief workers in Nepal will have full, free access to all of the UpToDate® clinical decision support resources, as well as to Ovid® MEDLINE® and Lippincott Williams & Wilkins journals, ebook collections, and expert searches. In addition, Wolters Kluwer employees have launched a donation campaign, to be matched by the company.

"We truly believe it's our mission to provide professionals and first responders with fast access to medical resources in support of emergency and trauma care to those affected by the disaster."
Access to these Wolters Kluwer resources is available to anyone with an IP address originating in Nepal. This applies to doctors, healthcare and emergency rescue workers, and volunteers, and will be available for at least 2 months.
