Aims and scope

Globalization and Health is a pioneering and transdisciplinary journal that situates public health and wellbeing within the dynamic forces of global development; publishing high quality original research and debate on globalization and its effects on public health, both positive and negative. 

We welcome papers on promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative, assistive and palliative aspects of public health and well-being. We embrace policy, systems, technological, organizational, clinical, community and individual perspectives. We do not privilege any disciplinary view; we encourage authors to situate their papers within global debates relevant to their topic; to question the status quo and to innovate new possibilities for public health, globally. We aim to reflect and shape the thinking and improve the health-related decisions of researchers, practitioners, governments, civil society, corporates and United Nations agencies.
