This section of Health Resources provides links to various specific health topics. Use the A to Z navigation links above, preceded by "Health Topics", to look for specific topics related to health and medicine. Health topics related to
cancer are included here also, but more focused and extensive links to specific types of cancer are found in the Cancer Resources website. Visit also separate webpages (see left navigation links) for AIDS, Heart Diseases & Stroke, Nutrition & Metabolism, etc.
Major compilations of specific topics, like Women's Health, are placed as separate sections (identified in bold red). Other health topics, like specific diseases (e.g., parasitic diseases, travelers diseases, etc.) will be placed as separate sections in the future.
Because of the serious nature of the subjects in the
Health Topics section, the sources of information will not be comprehensive. Instead, the focus are on links coming from the major biomedical research and educational institutions and relevant government agencies. Special emphasis are given on information databases that are updated regularly1.
The health topics listing included here integrated the extensive databases of the
Center for Disease Control and Prevention
and other sources (see
). Additional information are available also in the websites of the various major biomedical centers included in the
Medical Centers section. Visit also the "related websites" (see left navigation links) for other relevant information databases.
In case you do not find what you are looking for among the various health topics included in the A to Z navigation links above and in the other related sections (see left navigation links), the
section in this website provides search engines and directories that are more specific for the health and biomedical sciences. Some of these search engines and directories included information databases that were prepared specifically for laypeople as well as for physicians and scientists.
