About the Journal
Focus and Scope
Journal of Health Policy and Management (JHPM) is electronic, open access, peer-reviewed journal. It publishes research articles in the areas of health policy, health planning, health system, and health care management, with a special focus on low- and middle-income countries. The journal began its publication on October 21, 2015, and it is published twice yearly.
The JPHM provides a platform for publishing original and high-quality research that addresses questions pertinent to policy-makers, health care managers, public health researchers, and health care practitioners. The journal covers a broad range of topics from different fields, notably health policy, health management, health economics, epidemiology, social/ public policy, and philosophy. JHPM welcomes studies using multidisciplinary or integrative approaches.
Special encouragement is given to research papers addressing health issues in developing countries, as health policy and management issues impacting populations in the developing world are currently under-documented and underreported in the existing international journals.
