The HINARI Access to Research in Health program is one of four Research4Life (R4L) programs. R4L is a "a public-private partnership of the WHO (World Health Organization), FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), Cornell and Yale Universities, the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers and over 200 international scientific publishers". R4L was created to reduce a significant knowledge gap in developing countries by providing free or low cost access to vital scientific knowledge. HINARI focuses on health research and was the first R4L program. The acronym stands for Health Inter-Network Access to Research Initiative, although that name has been abandoned. The other R4L programs focus on research in agriculture, the environment, and development and innovation. In 2010, the R4L partners conducted an infrastructure review and a user experience review to assess R4L programs and their influence on the participation of developing countries in the global research community
