Abstracts on Hygiene and Communicable Diseases (AHCD) is a fully searchable abstract database of internationally published research in communicable diseases and public health including epidemiology and risk, diagnosis, therapy, health promotion and disease prevention.

AHCD brings you the latest information on patients and populations in the developed world and temperate climates. The database also includes information on disease vectors, epidemiology of non-infectious diseases (including those caused by environmental factors) and rural health.

Each week the online version delivers around 1100 highly-targeted, searchable summaries covering key English and non-English language journal articles, reports, conferences, theses and books about infectious diseases and public health.

Created and indexed by subject specialists AHCD provides access to these abstracts alongside comprehensive indexing, classification codes, taxonomies, thesauri and other data mining functionalities.

The database includes a fully searchable backfile to 1977 of over 600,000 research summaries. Around 60,000 new summaries are added each year, bringing  to your fingertips a wealth of current and seminal research.

Between 350 and 400 selected abstracts from AHCD are also available monthly in print with author, subject and serials cited indexes
