Welcome to POPLINE
POPLINE provides access to 380,000 carefully selected publications and resources related to family planning and reproductive health
The tenth edition of A User’s Guide to POPLINE Keywords provides guidance to searchers that allows them to structure both broadly comprehensive and very specific searches of the POPLINE database.
This edition updates the thesaurus to better reflect current scope coverage in POPLINE. The revision process included streamlining certain hierarchies, as well as adding new terms to facilitate searching mHealth concepts.
The new Guide includes both an alphabetical and permuted listing along with a supplement describing the changes made in this edition. Available in PDF and an interactive web-based version is also available online.
Investments that promote keeping girls in school, particularly in secondary school, have far-reaching and long-term health and development benefits for individuals, families, and communities.
