RC New Acquisitions

Resource Center New Acquisitions

The PHRplus Resource Center actively seeks out the latest publications, particularly hard-to-access gray literature, on all aspects of health sector reform. These documents are added to the PHRplus bibliographic database on health sector reform. The database citation includes ordering information on the document when available. Where livelinks are available, they are included as well.

A monthly list of bibliographic citations, organized by topic, highlights these new acquisitions. The most recent listing is presented below. Copies of non-project materials are not available from PHRplus.
