Global Health: Science and Practice 

Question: I understand USAID is involved in a new online peer reviewed global health journal. Is that right?

Answer: Yes in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University and George Washington University. It is called Global Health: Science and Practice and is especially oriented toward practical knowledge related to how to implement programs in the field.  At the journal's website you can learn more about the journal and sign up to be a subscriber or peer reviewer.  We are now accepting submissions and project to publish the first issue late 2012 or early 2013.
