Research and Reflection in Christian Health Policy and Practice Worldwide
In this evidence-driven age, funders, policy and practitioners seek reliable and timely information to justify initiatives and learn from the experience of others. Christian global health offers innovative solutions to many of the most vexing health challenges. Decades of practice in holistic health yield tremendous experience and research that is meaningful and powerful for improving lives. That collective knowledge base is largely untapped. There is no single place to submit, catalogue or retrieve information about Christian experience in global health.The Christian Journal for Global Health will therefore publish open-source, peer reviewed articles on global health with an international and inter-denominational Christian perspective. The CJGH will disseminate evidence-based best practices, improve understanding of intercultural work in the context of health, and increase world-wide exposure to the innovations, experiences and perspectives of global health workers.
What will the Journal include?
- Peer reviewed articles such as evidence-based research
- Thoughtful reviews of social, theological and other influences in global health
- Inclusion of many Christian traditions and perspectives
- Submissions from throughout the world
- Free and open access to readers – everywhere
How would this type of journal improve your work and mission?

- You will have new tools to help you seek funding, to advocate for policy, to influence operational decisions.
What value would you put on such a ground-breaking Journal?
Since we are making this journal free to our readers, we need your support to help get this started. We will keep costs low by disseminating the journal online. Eventually we will sell advertising and seek support from frequent users. A full business plan is available. Please consider partnering with us to help this project succeed.
