"As a young optometry student in Ghana, I was introduced to HINARI by a lecturer in the Optometry Dept in KNUST, Ghana, Dr. David Ben Kumah. By this, I downloaded my first journal article in ophthalmic epidemiology. This great introduction and tutorials on how to use HINARI for research, created a passion for research which I will forever be grateful for. Instead of pursuing clinical work after my Doctor of Optometry degree, I competed for a phd scholarship from the European Research Council which was being offered thorough the Waterford Institute of Technology. I am a product of what HINARI access can do. I believe there are many more researchers that are benefiting greatly from this program. Please keep on expanding this program. Thank you."
