Global Public Health
A peer-reviewed journal that energetically engages with key public health issues that have come to the fore in the global environment — mounting inequalities between rich and poor, the globalization of trade, new patterns of travel and migration, epidemics of newly-emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, the HIV/AIDS pandemic, the increase in chronic illnesses, escalating pressure on public health infrastructures around the world, and the growing range and scale of conflict situations, terrorist threats, environmental pressures, natural and human-made disasters.
Directed and supported by a leading international board of experts, the journal is broad-based and wide-ranging, including work that draws on the environmental health sciences; epidemiology; health policy and management; and the social sciences as applied to public health and medicine. It is characterized, and distinguished from other journals currently available in the field by its:
- global and multidisciplinary focus;
- emphasis on significant global health issues, including their social and cultural dimensions as appropriate;
- concern to understand resource-poor and resource-rich countries, and the public health challenges they face, as part of a single, interacting, global system.
