Elsevier Provides Free Clinical Information Support for Flood Relief Efforts in Peru, Ecuador and Colombia


Philadelphia, PA, April 11, 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics company specializing in science and health, is providing free access to its primary online clinical information and reference tool, ClinicalKey, to support healthcare professionals who are responding to the recent flooding and mudslides across Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. Earlier this year the region was struck by intense rains that overflowed rivers and caused mudslides, killing more than 70 people and leaving more than 70,000 homeless.

Emergency medical responders and other healthcare professionals in the affected region will be able to access ClinicalKey for free. ClinicalKey provides searchable, evidence-based clinical content and other medical information that empowers professionals in treating victims of this disaster.

Starting Friday, March 31, and for 60 days after, access to ClinicalKey (www.clinicalkey.es) will be open and free to all Internet Protocol (IP) addresses originating from the affected regions in Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. Healthcare professionals, hospitals and other healthcare institutions, and institutional medical libraries in those areas will be able to use ClinicalKey.

Likewise, we are making available, free of charge and immediately, a series of articles from other Elsevier databases specific to natural disasters caused by rain and flood:
