EEL is a free electronic public health resource that supports public health professionals and field epidemiologists in the EMR. It provides its users with access to resources and tools that will advance their research and practices.

EEL is also another space for spreading public health education and information that would contribute to bridging the information-to-action gap in the region.

Commenting on the anticipated impact of EEL on public health practice, Eastern Mediterranean Public Health Network Muhannad Ensour said "We are happy to launch such a tool into the EMR. We aim to improve public health practice and research by providing access to information through this library. We aim for EEL to be a comprehensive resource in the EMR, supporting field epidemiologists and public health professionals."

EEL contains multiple resources related to public health such as e-journals, and e-books. The library will be updated continuously in conjunction with the rapidly changing public health situation.

Eventually, this will help in advancing public health practices and research by providing healthcare professionals across the region with access to evidence-based information.

EEL will continue to build partnerships with institutes and libraries to further enhance its resource portfolio and to create more opportunities for users and researchers in the region to advance their work.
