The International Public Health LibGuide is a good place to start as it has links to pertinent journal databases, websites, and gives call number ranges for BANC. Some sections in the Reference Collection to begin research are 360 and 362s. Encyclopedia of global health (362.103 E563 2008) has been very helpful to other students researching this or similar topics. Reference works like encyclopedias contain many helpful sources such as bibliographies which include reference articles. Be sure to check BANC for the titles of any works that you find in the bibliographies.
