Founded in 1965 by Professor David Morley CBE, Teaching-aids At Low Cost (TALC) is a unique charity whose main objective is to promote the health of children and advance medical knowledge and teaching in the UK and throughout the world by providing and developing educational material.
Shop for Healthcare Books and Accessories
Our online store stocks a wide range of low cost healthcare books and accessories, including charts, downloads, CD-ROMs, videos and DVDs. We are very grateful to a number of organisations who have donated FREE CD-ROMs and other materials for distribution to the developing world.
Work with TALC and Donate to TALC
Help us to deliver up to date medical education to some of the poorest parts of the world. There are many ways you can help TALC in our work. Are you a publisher of medical material? Do you live in the St Albans area and have time to volunteer with us? Can you donate to TALC?
Onde Não Ha Médico
TALC’s Where There Is No Doctor has now been updated, translated and revised into Portuguese by a team from Mozambique. Onde Não Há Médico is intended for health workers in Portuguese-speaking countries of Africa and is now available.
