Global Health: Science and Practice Journal

Global Health: Science and Practice Journal

Global Health: Science and Practice is a new open-access, peer-reviewed online journal, that launched on March 26, 2013. The journal aims to improve health practice, especially in low- and middle-income countries by covering a wide range of global health topics, diverse programming models, and cross-cutting issues that impact and support health systems. Our goal is to reach people who design, implement, manage, evaluate, and otherwise support health programs. We are especially interested in advancing knowledge on how programs are implemented, and encourage those implementing programs in the field to share their research and experience with the global health community.
