New Issue of Global Health: Science and Practice Reports on Distribution of Injectables by Community Health Workers
The editors of the Global Health: Science and Practice (GHSP) Journal are pleased to announce the publication of Volume 1 Issue 3. One of the highlights of this issue is a group of articles including an editorial on not only the appropriateness but the desirability of utilzing community health workers to provide injectable contraceptives. This issue also includes a commentary on the importance of routine immunization as well as articles on topics such as: where parents take their sick children for care, obesity, pregnancy tests, the impact of emergency relief services on malnutrition, perceptions of providers, and a thoughtful editorial advocating for a more equitable use of PEPFAR resources on other global health priorities.
The GHSP journal is a no fee, open-access, peer-reviewed, online journal aimed to improve health practice, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Our goal is to reach those who design, implement, manage, evaluate, and otherwise support health programs. We are especially interested in advancing knowledge on practical program implementation issues, with information on what programs entail and how they are implemented. GHSP will include articles on all global health topics, covering diverse programming models and a wide range of cross-cutting issues that impact and support health systems.
GHSP is published by USAID in partnership with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health under the leadership of Editors-in-Chief James D. Shelton, MD, MPH of USAID. Visit our website at www.ghspjournal.org to submit a manuscript or subscribe alerts to be notified of articles, issues, or announcements. GHSP is published four times per year with the next issue scheduled for February 2014.
