4 When you look in textbooks it’s difficult to find African cases. The cases may be pretty similar but sometimes it can be confusing when you see something that you see on white skin so nicely and very easy to pick up, but on the dark skin it has a different manifestation that may be difficult to see. -Richard Phillips, lecturer, Department of Internal Medicine, KNUST (Ghana) Image CC:BY-NC-SA Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology 2008: Launch health OER network 4

5 “We have limited resources but because of the Internet, we can share. The South has diseases [the Global North] knows nothing about. Our materials are relevant to us and in the North.” A Network Participant from South Africa Connecting institutions, individuals Image CC:BY tuppus (Flickr)Flickr 5
