World Medical & Health Policy

World Medical & Health Policy is a unique new journal dedicated to the intersection of politics, policy, medicine, and public health. We live in a globalizing world, where public policy decisions affect the prevention of diseases and the practice of medicine.

World Medical & Health Policy publishes articles that translate research into policies and practice standards. The journal brings a policy perspective to medical practice, translating empirical evidence into policy recommendations, with special attention to the ethical allocation of scarce resources that can make or break the success of health measures and clinical practices.

Articles benefit from fast decision time and publication (as little as 10 weeks), and extensive electronic dissemination to readers around the world.
