The Medical Library and the University Library have arranged access for the University to the Global Health database, aka CABI Global Health.
Access is available for 4 users simultaneously. Once you have finished using the database please log out of it.
Produced by CABI, this database was created to ensure that key literature from all sources can be brought quickly and easily to the attention of those working in the field. The database covers all aspects of public health at both international and community levels, as well as a wealth of material from other biomedical and life science fields.
A promotional flyer is available here to help promote this resource in your library.
Global Health is the only specialized bibliographic, abstracting and indexing database dedicated to public health, completing the picture of international medical and health research by capturing key literature that is not covered by other databases, providing users with a truly global perspective.
Literature in this database is selected by subject specialists to include only relevant papers, and content is directed by an international editorial advisory board. Global Health covers journals, such as BMA (British Medical Association), Evidence-Based Practice for Public Health (Lamar Soutter Library, Massachusetts), Core Public Health Journals Project (US Medical Library Association) and World Public Health Association.
CABI is not like most other publishers. Our commitment to publishing databases, books and other information resources is not driven by profit. We are a not-for-profit organization with a mission that has scientific research and international development at its core. CABI improves lives worldwide by providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment.
More than 800 million people in developing countries live in rural areas–the majority relying entirely on what they can grow themselves in order to survive. Through our work, not only are
scientists and institutions provided with the knowledge they need to support their own work, but also smallholder farmers are helped to lose less of their crops to pests and diseases,
improve crop quality and yield, and create better livelihoods for their familes.
