Creation of an Information Sharing Environment (EIC in Spanish) for scientific and research activities in the field of Perinatal and Child Health, Psychology and Psychopathology, Education and other areas that help foster the health of children and their families.

The following is gathered:

1 - Research and articles published in Spanish in Spain and Latin America.

2 - Research and articles published in other languages in Europe and other countries. (Being planned).


This initiative from ASMI WAIMH Spain, in collaboration with the Institute of History of Medicine and Science (CSIC-UV) and the Master's in Perinatal and Infant Psychology and Psychopathology at the University of Valencia - ASMI WAIMH Spain, aims to promote access to both public and private research results in the field of health, education, psychology and perinatal and infant psychopathology as well as other fields of knowledge that result in benefits in terms of perinatal, infant and parental mental health.

The main aim is to promote research through an "Information Sharing Environment" (EIC in Spanish) to facilitate an exchange of knowledge provided by different disciplines and authors, using the multiplicity of disciplines as a channel for developing inter-disciplinary research in the field of perinatal and infant health and psychopathology.

Having updated knowledge about the research produced in the field of the early stages of life is a priority in fostering the vocation and effectiveness of this field. With this aim in mind, ASMI WAIMH Spain invites a wide range of professionals, public and private universities, foundations and associations to join its initiative to develop an updated, shared and dynamic registry involving these three concepts: Archival pool, intercommunication and meetings.

Database archive pool.
