The Bulletin of the World Health Organization is published monthly in English, with French and Spanish abstracts for each article by theWorld Health Organization (WHO).
Established for more than 50 years as a leading research journal, the Bulletin of the World Health Organization was expanded in 1999 . In line with sweeping changes preparing WHO for the new century, the Bulletin quickened its pace of publication and extended its editorial scope.
Contributions from the social and behavioural sciences extend the journal's traditional coverage of biomedical and scientific research. Support from a prestigious Editorial Board, as well as from an extensive group of reviewers, has raised the standards of manuscript appraisal and acceptance even higher.
By placing research findings and policy-relevant discussions side by side, the Bulletin aims to stimulate debate on public health policy and practice based on the best evidence available, while also encouraging closer links between scientific investigation and the challenge of helping populations to lead healthier lives. In selecting articles for publication, the editors continue to give priority to original findings that advance understanding of health problems - and ways to solve them - in a world where health concerns every country, and diseases respect no boundaries."... The Bulletin in its new form will be open to every perspective that can increase our understanding of health problems and how to solve them. In this way it will reflect our decision to make WHO not only a participant but a leader in the current fast-moving interactive process of global change..."
Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland, Director-General, WHO
