Mission:

JPHP aims to create a more inclusive public health policy dialogue, within nations and among them. It broadens public health policy debates beyond the ‘health system’ to examine all forces and environments that impinge on the health of populations. It provides an exciting platform for airing controversy and framing policy debates – honing policies to solve new problems and unresolved old ones.
