Public Health Image Library

Database of CDC''''s pictures organized into hierarchical categories of people, places, and science, presented as single images, image sets, and multimedia files. Much of the information critical to the communication of public health messages is pictorial rather than text-based. Created by a Working Group at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the PHIL offers an organized, universal electronic gateway to CDC''''s pictures. Public health professionals, the media, laboratory scientists, educators, students, and the worldwide public are welcome to use this material for reference, teaching, presentation, and public health messages.
