For people looking for reliable health material in Spanish, the amount of
information on the web can be overwhelming. NIH prides itself on providing
evidence-based health information to the public, and seeks to empower
everyone with knowledge about their health. This is particularly important
in Spanish-speaking communities that are disproportionally affected by
certain illnesses and diseases.
The NIH Spanish Health Information Portal offers a wealth of free,
science-based health information in Spanish, from across NIH in one place.
The mobile-friendly site includes translations of many health articles
News in Health *and clinical trials information from the Clinical Research
Trials and You website. It also features a monthly column called Ask Carla
(Pregunta a Carla), designed for readers to ask their own questions about
NIH’s Spanish-language resources.
The Spanish portal now offers a free monthly e-newsletter featuring NIH
health information in Spanish on topics from allergies to Zika. Each month,
the e-newsletter highlights new resources for the Spanish-speaking public
and their friends and family members.
You can visit the portal and sign up for the newsletter at *salud.nih.gov
