The WHO Reproductive Health Library (RHL)

The WHO Reproductive Health Library (RHL) is a curated collection of high-quality evidence in reproductive health, published by the World Health Organization (WHO).
RHL’s mission is to accelerate the implementation of new, high-quality evidence into reproductive health practice globally.
To achieve this, we systematically identify and summarize new evidence in reproductive health, and disseminate it globally. RHL strives for universal accessibility, to ensure high-quality evidence is available to all who need it.
RHL is published and co-ordinated by staff at the Department of Reproductive Health and Research at the World Health Organization in Geneva. We are guided by the RHL Editorial Board, an international group of reproductive health experts, clinicians and researchers. The RHL Community comprises an international group of volunteers who are working in all areas of sexual and reproductive health practice, research and dissemination.
The WHO Reproductive Health Library (RHL) project was initiated by the UNDP/UNFPA/WHO/World Bank Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP) in April 1996. Since then many individuals and institutions have supported and contributed to this project. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Department of Reproductive Health and Research, of which HRP is now a part, are grateful to all those individuals and institutions.
