Global Health: Science and Practice

Global Health: Science and Practice (GHSP) is a no-fee, open access, peer-reviewed online journal intended to be a resource for public health professionals who design, implement, manage, evaluate, and otherwise support health programs in low- and middle-income countries. GHSP fills an important gap in the scholarly literature for evidence and experience from global health programs implemented under real-world conditions, with specifics on the “how” of implementation—lessons and detail that are often buried in gray literature or not documented at all. It is published quarterly (March, June, September, December).

GHSP includes articles on all global health topics, including but not limited to family planning, reproductive health, maternal and child health, water and sanitation, nutrition, and communicable and noncommunicable diseases. The journal embraces an interdisciplinary approach and covers a range of cross-cutting issues such as gender, quality improvement, logistics, and supply chain management.

GHSP is made possible by the support of the American People through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the Knowledge SUCCESS project. The journal is published by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs and the University of Alberta, School of Public Health. GHSP is editorially independent and does not necessarily represent the views or positions of USAID, the United States Government, the Johns Hopkins University, or other publishing partners.
