The OER Network is a project of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), led by the Virtual Campus for Public Health (VCPH) and the Virtual Health Library (VHL), which aims at creating a network of Open Educational Resources allowing the publication, search and retrieval of learning objects throughout the region of the Americas.
