More on this journal...

The objectives of IJHP are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex role of healthcare policy. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of healthcare policy. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome national, regional and organisational barriers and to meet the needs of a constantly changing healthcare environment.


IJHP provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers working in the field of healthcare policy to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work


IJHP publishes original papers, unsolicited manuscripts, symposium-based pieces, review papers, case studies and book reviews. Special issues devoted to important topics in healthcare policy will occasionally be published. The journal invites individuals, practitioners, academicians, and all others who have an interest in healthcare to submit manuscripts.
