RC New Acquisitions

PHRplus Resource Center

Resource center staffThe PHRplus project Resource Center (RC) collects and disseminates information about health reform in general and the project in particular. The RC distributes project publications and serves as an information broker to facilitate access to reliable information about health reform, particularly hard-to-access gray literature. A monthly listing of New Acquisitions can be accessed here.

The Bibliographic Database cites books, papers, gray literature, videos, CD-ROMs, and journal articles related to health sector reform and the work of PHRplus. Where available, a direct link to the item is provided. This database contains more than 6,000 entries, primarily from 1990 to the present and can be searched by title, author, publisher, organization, date, region, language, and subject. Although the RC does not provide photocopying services, many of the resources in the PHRplus Bibliographic Database can be found at local university or medical libraries. Ordering information is provided with each entry as available.

Sample Bibliography – National Health Accounts (NHA). This bibliography was created as part of our effort to contribute to the body of literature on NHA as they relate to health sector reform. Please note that the documents in the bibliography are not available from the PHRplus Resource Center.

PHRplus, PHR, and HFS Publications

Our website also carries select reports from both predecessor projects, the Health Financing and Sustainability (HFS, 1990-1995) and Partnerships for Health Reform (PHR, 1995-2000).

PHRplus Glossary
The Glossary of Health Reform Terms for Translators includes some 170 terms in English, French, Spanish, and Russian with a definition of the term in English. It is intended to be used as a reference guide for translators. The glossary is updated periodically to reflect the changing lexicon of health care terms and concepts.
