The only specialist 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.

Derived from over 7,000 journals, reports, books and conferences, Global Health contains over 2.7 million scientific records from 1973 to the present. Approximately 185,000 records are added each year, and over 96% of these records include an English abstract.

Publications from over 100 countries in 50 languages are abstracted, and all relevant non-English-language papers are translated to give access to research not available through any other database.

The database's open serials policy and coverage of international and grey literature means that 40% of material contained in Global Health is unique to the database. Everything from proceedings, theses, electronic-only publications and other hard-to-find sources are included.

Global Health has a growing number of full text articles (over 68,000) from journals, conferences, and reports.
