Southern African Journal of Public Health (incorporating Strengthening Health Systems)

Southern African Journal of Public Health incorporating Strengthening Health Systems aims to bridge the divides between academia, policy and implementation in health systems intervention and reform. We publish papers with recognisable policy impact that draw on robust research and operational experience from both academic and non-academic authors.

We are committed to addressing the 5/95 publications gap for health systems research, a term coined by the WHO-based Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research to describe the imbalance between numbers of health systems research papers from developing countries compared to developed nations. As such, we have pledged to maintain a policy of no author fees and open access publication for all our content to remove barriers to publication and ensure maximum dissemination and use of published work.

To support all authors, no matter how inexperienced, to capture their knowledge in the scientific record, we also offer a cluster of publishing support services, including protocol reviews, writing support, intensive author feedback/developmental editing, and mentoring arrangements, Please email to find out more.
