TAIPEI, Taiwan, October 05, 2015

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and solutions, is providing free access to dengue-related content and information to Taiwan’s health care organizations and workers.

The 90-day free access to information, which began on 25 September, aims to equip Taiwan’s health care professionals with evidence-based clinical content and information to help contain the spread of the epidemic as well as to improve engagement and management of patients affected by the debilitating dengue virus.

Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) for Dengue Outbreak has cautioned that the country is still at the peak of the dengue season due to Typhoon Dujuan.

All hospitals, institutional libraries, clinics and health care professionals supporting the management of the dengue outbreak can access free dengue-related content and information from Elsevier’s Global Med News site by visiting http://www.globalmednews.tw/medicine.php?id=3.
