Access Evidence-Based Public Health Resources

Published literature can provide basis for use of a health intervention in your community and describe innovative methods for tackling complex public health issues. Online databases and toolkits are available on a wide range of topics and often include open access journals, systematic reviews, and other references for evidence-based decision making for public health practitioners. 

In Ohio, you may also connect with academic journals through public and university library systems. If you have not already, familiarize yourself with guidance on evaluating the quality of evidence presented, or critical appraisal, before beginning your search.
