MedlinePlus and MedlinePlus en español currently have over 950 health topics in both English and Spanish. These health topic pages contain collections of vetted links to consumer health resources, which are organized into subcategories. On January 12, 2016, in an effort to simplify and streamline the subcategories schema, the following changes were made to both MedlinePlus and MedlinePlus en español:
- “Finance and Policy”
- “Diagnosis and Tests”
- “Prevention and Risks Factors”
- Videos and Tutorials into “Videos and Tutorials”
- Specific Conditions to “Specifics”
