About the Prevention News Update Database

New articles are abstracted and added to the database daily. The database includes articles from June 1988 to the present.

What You Will Find When You Search This Database?

The Prevention News Update Database will help you find abstracts of articles written about HIV/AIDS, STDs, and TB which have appeared in journals, newspapers, magazines, and other media sources.

The information provided about each article includes the:

  • title
  • accession number for the database record,
  • authors,
  • source,
  • major descriptors, and
  • the abstract.

How the Database Is Organized

The Prevention News Update Database is organized into sections called "fields." For example, "Authors," "Source," and "Major Descriptors," are each separate fields. Together these fields make up the full description of each article in the database; this is called a "record." Your search results will be made up of database records that match your search question.

After you enter the information, click on Search. The Results screen will show all articles that match the criteria you entered. Click on an article's title to display the full record for that article.
