Swiss National Science Foundation joins Europe PMC
- 24 May 2018

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) has become a member of Europe PMC, which maintains the world's largest repository for biomedicine.

Researchers funded by the SNSF can store their articles in the repository. This makes the articles accessible free of charge and the research results therein more visible. Some publishers will automatically upload all articles by SNSF-funded researchers to Europe PMC.

But the service goes beyond merely uploading documents. Europe PMC enriches the publications with information such as citation data and links from other databases. Automated searches within the texts can help users reap maximum benefit by seeing the insights published in the articles and databases in context.

Europe PMC contains 33.5 million abstracts, 4.6 million full-text articles and 5 million further entries, such as patents and clinical guidelines. The repository thus not only simplifies access to publications, it also offers a big picture view of biomedical research.

The SNSF wants free and public access for all SNSF-funded publications by 2020. It is expected that its participation in Europe PMC will make it easier for researchers to meet this requirement.

The BMJ and Harvard Global Health Institute launch special collection
- 23 May 2018

The BMJ in partnership with the Harvard Global Health Institute has launched a special collection of articles that will explore how to achieve effective universal health coverage (UHC).

The collection will highlight the importance of quality in UHC, potential finance models, how best to incentivise stakeholders, and uncover some of the barriers to true UHC.

The collection coincides with a panel discussion at the 71st World Health Assembly meeting in Geneva entitled Quality Care: Delivering on the Promise of UHC.

Speaking alongside Health Ministers and representatives from the World Bank, World Health Organization and OECD will be Dr Kamran Abbasi, Executive Editor at The BMJ and Professor Ashish Jha at the Harvard Global Health Institute.

UHC refers to a system which seeks to provide everyone, everywhere with access to essential quality health services without facing financial hardship. It is a key target of the UN sustainable development goals and a top priority for the WHO.

According to Wilhemina Jallah, Minister of Health of the Republic of Liberia and colleagues, in a linked article, investing in community health workers accelerates universal health coverage.

They describe a program to hire, train, and equip nearly 3000 community health assistants and over 300 nurse supervisors that has led to remarkable progress in tackling common childhood diseases and supporting pregnant women.

In a second linked article, Professor Adolfo Rubinstein, Minister of Health of Argentina, outlines how they are building more effective health care coverage in Argentina. Reforms include setting up provincial public insurance schemes, creating a transparent process for setting priorities, reducing disparities in effective coverage, and building a primary care oriented health care system.

All the articles will be available at https://www.bmj.com/universal-health-coverage
