This is the VOA Special English Development Report.

Six major publishers have announced an agreement to provide developing countries with medical publications on the Internet computer system. The agreement includes about one-thousand of the top medical publications in the world. Some of the six publishers also plan to place medical books on the Internet in a similar way.

The World Health Organization asked the publishers to take the action so doctors and researchers in poor countries could improve health care in their nations. The agreement is expected to help at least six-hundred institutions in one-hundred developing countries. These include universities, medical schools, hospitals and research centers. The program also includes teaching people how to find the medical information using a computer. It will go into effect in January.

Scientific magazines have published medical research for more than fifty years. But many medical schools in developing countries cannot get the publications. One W-H-O official says most American medical schools get one-thousand or more publications. Most medical schools in developing countries get fewer than one-hundred.

One reason is cost. Most scientific publications cost between two-hundred and one-thousand-five-hundred dollars a year. Some cost even more. An extreme example is the magazine "Brain Research." It costs seventeen-thousand dollars a year. It is among the publications included under the new agreement. More than sixty of the poorest countries will receive the publications on the Internet for free. More than thirty other countries will pay a reduced cost for the scientific magazines.

The publications will be on the Internet in a special place being created by the W-H-O. It will guarantee security and provide search tools. The W-H-O also is concerned that some countries still will not be able to get the information because they do not have computers. Officials say they are working on a plan to solve that problem. They plan to ask technology companies for help in providing more computers for researchers in developing countries.

W-H-O director Gro Harlem Brundtland says the agreement is the biggest step ever taken to equalize health information among rich and poor countries.

China is a poor country where the number of the publications about medicine is still small. Most universities cannot provide the students in the college with sufficient medical publications because the university cannot afford the large amount of money paid for the cost of the publications. Even in the most prestigious universitis like Sichuan University, the extreme of the low number of publications about medicine is widespread.

Year by year, our government has been spending more and more money on education . But because China is a large country with a large population, which means that there are a lot of universities and students, students in the college cannot get enough medical publications on average. China has been the country with the second largest number of college students in the world. Although the rate at which the GDP increases is quite fast,

the personal GDP is also quite small because China has nearly one fifth of the world's population.
