Public Health Knowledge Domains

Public health is an interdisciplinary field of study and research. The following list identifies twenty knowledge domains within public health. Awareness of the databases associated with a specific knowledge domain can be useful when searching the literature. For example, articles on health services administration may be located in business-related databases as well as the health sciences literature, and articles on health promotion and education may be located in education-related databases. See a list of public health databases available to the public.
