Who we are
Journal of Global Health (JoGH) is a peer-review general medical journal focusing on issues relevant for global health. The mission of the journal is to serve the community of researchers, funding agencies, international organizations, policy-makers and other stakeholders by providing an independent critical assessment of the key issues that dominated the global health community.

JoGH publishes original articles, viewpoints, research protocols and other publication items, making them available in full text online as soon as they are ready for publication. The articles are collected in two annual print issues, at the end of June and December. All submissions and editorial inquiries should be directed to editor[at]jogh.org.
Publisher: Edinburgh University Global Health Society (EUGHS). The aim of the EUGHS is to inspire and educate individuals, groups, organizations and communities about global health issues. The society is affiliated to the Centre for Population Health Sciences of the University of Edinburgh, and it works closely with the Global Health Academy of the University of Edinburgh, while also maintaining collaboration with academic partners throughout the world.
The views expressed by the authors do not reflect the views of JoGH or its publisher.
