Health Databases

Here you find general reference and useful databases that specialize on topics covering global health, public health, maternal and child health, mental health, reproductive health; health planning & management (including evidence-based practice and systematic reviews) and more. The databases are organized by these specialized subjects for ease of reference. For details on subjects identified and catalogued by the RC, see the glossary or ‘Main subject areas’ and ‘Subsidiary subject areas”. There are also grey literature and multidisciplinary specialist databases to allow you to make your search.

Most of the databases are free to use and provide access to journals, e-books, articles, and expert commentaries. However, some database services require free registration and login. Please read the database suppliers’ terms of use, copyright, and privacy policies before using the resources. A number of key health databases that require subscription are also listed for your information.
