The Public Health Database (BDSP) organizes every year a meeting of documentalists from this network, in order to work on the sharing of documents and the exchange of good practices. In 2014, during this event hosted in Paris on the 16th and 17th June, the EHESP School of Public Health welcomes Mouloud Ben Abbou, in charge of the Documentation Center at the ENSP School of Public Health in Rabat, Morocco.

The National Institute of Public Health (INAS), which later became the National School of Public Health (ENSP), is a long‑standing partner of the EHESP School of Public Health. Support had been provided to the setting up of a training aimed to Moroccan hospital managers from 2003 to 2006 (more information on the partnership EHESP-ENSP in French). Within this project, an audit of the Documentation Center in Rabat was made. The ENSP School of Public Health in Rabat is a producing member of the BDSP network since 2006. In particular, the ENSP School of Public Health Documentation Center provides the BDSP document base with the students’ works.

In addition to these meetings, there will be discussions on the public health document management within the ENSP School of Public Health, and generally speaking in Morocco, aiming to reinforce the collaboration with the BDSP.
