CHID is a bibliographic database produced by health-related agencies of the federal government. This database provides titles, abstracts, and availability information for health information and health education resources. CHID lists a wealth of health promotion and education materials and program descriptions that are not indexed elsewhere. The database covers 12 topics and has been available to the public since 1985. New records are added quarterly and current listings are checked regularly to help ensure that entries are up to date and still available from their original sources. CHID is updated four times a year.
