Knowledge, experience, effort, and funding are some ways in which we have supported local communities. Our people, products, and solutions are available in areas of need, to make a sustainable, long-term impact. The scope of our community support framework includes our endeavors in emergency relief activities, support for the underprivileged, as well as rewarding achievements and providing expertise for the community.

In many cases, community involvement initiatives coincide with our area of expertise. The long-term collaboration with the United Nations Hinari program, enabling communities in need to download Wolters Kluwer’s digital health solutions free of charge, has resulted in a total contribution of 982,357 downloads over the past three years. The World Health Organization set up Hinari together with major publishers to enable low- and middle-income countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. The large collection of more than 400 OVID Journals available range from anesthesia to psychiatric practices. Wolters Kluwer Health aims to continue providing its expertise for positive and wide-reaching impact.
In another example, Wolters Kluwer is helping clinicians in the battle against the Zika virus. The Company's Health division launched the Zika Resource Portal, a single point of access to trusted clinical knowledge and current information to help healthcare professionals worldwide stay up-to-date on the virus. The Portal provides complimentary access to our leading evidence-based point of care clinical, learning, and research solutions, as well as continuous updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO).
