We are pleased to announce that Califa has signed the linking agreement with Merck Publishing on behalf of all of our members so that you can provide ready access to reliable, unbiased health information to your communities.
The Manuals, known as the Merck Manuals in the United States and Canada and MSD Manuals in the remainder of the world, are one of the world's most widely used medical information resources. Merck believes that health information is a universal right and that every person is entitled to accurate and accessible medical information. In addition, they are keenly aware of literacy issues. Their consumer manuals are written at an 8th-9th grade reading level by the same doctors who also write the "professional" versions. They are also developing "quick guides" for the more popularly searched topics, like Zika, that will be written at a 5th grade level. All of the content is currently available in 9 different languages with plans to add more in 2017.
Califa members can link directly to their site at www.merckmanuals.com.
Members who would like to have a search widget on your website can contact Mike Wisniewski, Strategic Partnership Manager at Merck. Merck will work with you individually to make sure you have access to the proper code for one that matches your desired size and color.
