UNC Project Library in Malawi

at library in Malawi

The UNC Project Library, organized in Malawi in 2004 with the collaboration and ongoing support of UNC Health Sciences Library, serves as a critical information hub, offering print and electronic resources for the clinical research and educational activities of the faculty, staff, and students of the UNC Project and Kamuzu Central Hospital.

The library is located at the Tidziwe Centre in Lilongwe, which is only fitting as “Tidziwe” is a word in the local Chichewa language meaning “We should find out.”

“The value of the project and the library is in the people that it’s really helping. It’s an invaluable service because it’s building the health systems in Malawi.”

—Dr. Irving Hoffman, Director of International Operations,
