HINARI enables 116 developing countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. It provides not-for-profit research institutions, medical, nursing, dentistry and pharmacy schools, government health and economics ministries with free or very low cost online access to research journals, databases and other online resources.

Hinari was initiated by publishers in response to a request made to them by the World Health Organization in 2001 to alleviate the information needs of researchers working in the poorest counties. The programme was launched in 2002 by six STM member companies, Blackwell, Elsevier Science, Harcourt International STM Group, Springer Verlag, John Wiley and Wolters Kluwer International Health and Science, in partnership with the World Health Organization. Since then, the programme has been joined by more than 200 publishers.
