Routledge has recently published the first of its Global Health Communication journal, an open access journal that addresses health questions from multiple perspectives, experiences and cultures.
The journal creates a space for the international research community to advance scholarship around the role of communication processes in global public health, policy and behavior change. Although focussed in description on "communication" the articles in the first issue include multiple examples of high level community engagement work so it will certainly be of interest to the Mesh community.

Date: 2-3 March 2017
Deadline for submitting the application: 16 December 2016, 5:00 PM IST
