Call for Papers for HSR Theme Issue: Global Health Systems
Submission deadline: October 23, 2010

Health Services Research and Yale University are partnering to publish a Theme Issue on Global Health, with a specific focus on global health systems.
Global health - the study of improving human health and achieving equity in health worldwide - has attracted the attention of key stakeholders at multiple levels including policy-makers and politicians, international corporations, and international non-governmental agencies. Likewise, research, policies and financial resources have been increasingly focused on global health, most notably over the past decade. For this Theme Issue, we are soliciting studies, evaluations, policy analyses and simulations that use rigorous and scientific research methods to assess the impact of systems to improve global health, including delivery, financing, and regulatory systems.
