How to order a Blue Trunk Library

Each Blue Trunk Library costs US$2000. This price includes the collection of books already prepared in the Trunk and the training of those responsible for the trunks at the district level, once there are at least 20 trunks in a country. The actual cost of dispatch will be added to the invoice.

An order can be placed with the WHO Representative's Office in your country or you can directly contact WHO Press in Geneva ( You will receive a pro forma invoice with the necessary bank details. The Blue Trunk Libraries are dispatched after receipt of payment.

To find funding, the WHO Representative's Office in your country could be of assistance as they know the donor agencies working in the health field. Most Blue Trunk Libraries already installed in countries have been financed by bilateral or multilateral cooperation agencies, NGOs or sometimes by the WHO Representative's Office itself.
