Finding, organizing and using health information is an information literacy training manual written by:

• Grace Ada Ajuwon
• AbdrahamaneAnne
• Thembani Malapela
• Christine Wamunyima Kanyengo
• Nancy Kamau
• Sara Mbaga
• Cristina Horta
• Agnes Chikonzo

The authors of this manual are members of AHILA as well as Associates/Affiliates of the National Library of Medicine (NLM). The purpose of the manual is to help librarians / information professionals, students, researchers, and health care providers in Africa to find, manage and use health information without reliance on Wikipedia and Google. It is also a useful tool for librarians who have to train their users on how to access and manage information.

The manual consists of seven modules. Video clips showing brief presentation of the modules by the authors are available at the NLM U-Tube channel which is accessible via the links below:
