Registration & Eligibility

How can I find out if my country is eligible to participate?

You can consult the list of the two groups of countries that are eligible to participate in HINARI. Please check Eligibility Web page.

How do you determine which countries, areas, or territories are eligible?

Local, not-for-profit institutions in two groups of countries, areas, or territories may register for access to the publications through the Core Offer of HINARI. The country lists are based on four factors: Total GNI (World Bank figures), GNI per capita (World Bank figures), United Nations Least Developed Country (LDCs) List and Human Development Index (HDI). Institutions in countries, areas, or territories matching the Group A criteria may be eligible for free access. Institutions in countries, areas, or territories matching the Group B criteria may be eligible to pay a fee of US$ 1500 per year.

Which type of institutions are eligible?

The eligible institutions are: universities, research institutes, professional schools (medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, and dentistry), teaching hospitals, government offices and national medical libraries. HINARI does not accept registrations from individuals, but only from institutions.

Which institutions in my country are participating?

Your institution might already be registered with one of the programmes. If so, it can register again for a different programme, but please check the Registered Universities and Professional Schools By Programme before proceeding.

How can I register my institution to HINARI?

If you determine that your institution meets the eligibility criteria listed on our website, please complete the on-line registration form. Only one registration is required per institution. We will send you instructions for getting started and a licence agreement to sign with the terms of use.

I filled out the registration form, can I now access HINARI?

Once The HINARI Team has processed your completed registration form, you will be contacted and given detailed instructions on how to access and use the system. This usually takes four to six weeks. It is essential that your institution complete all of the fields in the registration form with the information requested. Failure to complete all of the fields in the form will result in delays in processing your application.
