Global Health provides an alternative, complementary point of reference with a broad analysis of foreign language journals, books, research reports, patents and standards, dissertations, conference proceedings, annual reports, public health, developing country information, and other difficult to obtain material.
The Global Health databases cover the following aspects of human health and disease: communicable diseases (including HIV/AIDS), tropical diseases, parasitic diseases, medical entomology, human nutrition, nutritional disorders, community and public health, occupational health, health status indicators, the impact of agriculture on health, cancer epidemiology, medicinal and poisonous plants.

The records may also appear in printed abstract journals published by CABI. Nearly all records have informative English abstracts prepared by scientists.
