PUBLICATIONS AND JOURNALS
Collection, analyses, and reporting of accurate data are critical in public policy efforts to address health disparities. In fact, a report by the National Academy of Sciences (formerly the Institute of Medicine) on Standardized Collection of Race/Ethnicity Data for Healthcare Quality warned that “inadequate data on race, ethnicity, and language lowers the likelihood of effective actions to address health disparities.” Therefore, data, research, and dissemination via publications are critical in advancing GHEP’s mission of eliminating health disparities. GHEP regularly participates in data collection and research efforts aimed at shining light on health disparities and health inequities through the publication of two (2) peer-reviewed scholarly journals, blogs, articles, and other planned or ad hoc publications.
International Journal of Maternal and Child Health (MCH) and AIDS
The International Journal of Maternal and Child Health (MCH) and AIDS (IJMA) is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed, global health, open-access journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, methodology articles, field studies or field reports, policy papers, and commentaries in all areas of maternal and child health (MCH) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
IJMA is the only open-access journal that focuses on the social determinants of health and disease and disparities in communicable, non-communicable disease burden affecting the MCH and HIV/AIDS populations including infants, children, women, men/fathers, and families across the life span. All published articles become freely available on the internet for reading and distribution without a subscription or payment.

International Journal of Translational Medical Research and Public Health
The International Journal of Translational Medical Research and Public Health (IJTMRPH) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that publishes original research, review articles, field studies, and commentaries on all aspects of applied or translational medical research, global and public health.
The journal publishes papers that can be applied to global and public health practices, programs, and policies. The journal is passionate about papers that contribute to local and international efforts to improve the health of populations and save lives around the world.
IJTMRPH welcomes manuscripts that discuss the application of research results to global and public health programs, policy and practices. IJTMRPH is a development-oriented journal; therefore it particularly welcomes submissions from authors in, or research on, health issues affecting developing (low and middle-income) countries. All published articles become freely available on the internet for reading and distribution without a subscription or payment.
Blogs and News
GHEP News and Blogs provide a global platform for advancing the discourse on social determinants of health and health disparities at the local, national, and international levels. GHEP Blog provides a free platform for researchers, experts, and policymakers from around the world to contribute views and opinions to global health issues that contribute to the contemporary understanding of and potential solutions to health disparities. It provides a home for diverse voices from the developed, developing world, and from populations facing disparities across the world. GHEP strives to make the blog and news pages to be a confetti of ideas, providing an opportunity to all those who share in eliminating the burden of diseases of populations in the poorest corners of the world.
Blogs and news articles are authored by staff, volunteers, solicited, and unsolicited guest writers. To encourage originality of voice and tone, contributions are not peer-reviewed but they are vetted to ensure that they are of fairly good quality and conform with our editorial policies and basic decency in civil communication.
