Announcing BMJ Global Health

I’m delighted to announce to HIFA members our new journal – BMJ Global Health –

The journal’s aims are to achieve a world in which every person and country has access to the information about health, health care and social determinants of health that they need to protect their own health and the health of the people for whom they take responsibility.

Everything that we do at BMJ is driven by our vision of “A Healthier World”. The journal will appeal to anyone working in global health – from doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, policy makers, researchers, NGOs and funders – as we work together to achieve this vision.

Please read the introductory Editorial from our Editor-in Chief Dr Seye Abimbola

Access to the journal will be free to everyone – wherever they are in the world. In order to achieve this we need to work with funders which are willing to support our vision and to contribute to underwriting the costs of publishing a top quality journal. We welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can work together, so please spread the word.

The journal is accepting submissions now and the first content will go live in early 2016.

If you have any questions, want to submit an article or want to discuss supporting the journal, please contact me or Dr Seye Abimbola.

We hope that you agree that this is an important step forward in achieving a healthier world.
