Welcome to the Harvard Public Health Review
Our vision is to be recognized as a premier publication that transcends the traditional boundaries of academia to enrich discourse around issues of public health.
The mission of the Harvard Public Health Review (HPHR) is to improve health at the local, national, and international levels. To that end, HPHR will publish content grounded in thoughtful evaluation of evidence and research that addresses issues of health equity.
HPHR seeks content that:
- Spurs thoughtful and substantive discussion of challenging public health issues
- Fosters collaboration and diversity across disciplines
- Integrates ideas and methods
- Investigates biological, psychosocial, and environmental determinants of health
- Translates knowledge into action
- Impacts program and policy decisions and health practices
- Supports work that advances health equity
