A new partnership is bringing books and teaching materials to nurses and health care workers caring for refugees in Africa. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) has been partnering with Merck Sharp and Dohme (MSD) on mobile book libraries, but new support from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has helped expand the program.
