About this journal

Annals of Global Health is a peer-reviewed, fully open access, online journal dedicated to publishing high quality articles dedicated to all aspects of global health. The journal's mission is to advance global health, promote research, and foster the prevention and treatment of disease worldwide. Its goals are to improve the health and well-being of all people, advance health equity, and promote wise stewardship of the earth's environment. The latest journal impact factor is 2.90.

Annals of Global Health is supported by the Program for Global Public Health and the Common Good at Boston College. It was founded in 1934 by the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai as the Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine. It is a partner journal of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health. 

From time to time, Annals of Global Health publishes Special Collections, a series of articles organized around a common theme in global health. Recent Special Collections have included "Local evidence and strategies in addressing NCDs Non-Communicable Diseases in Tanzania", "Universal Health Coverage through Integrated Care", and "The Minderoo-Monaco Commission on Plastics and Human Health". Global health workers interested in developing a Special Collection are strongly encouraged to contact the Managing Editor in advance to discuss the project.


  • Special Collection: Plastics and Human Health

    Plastics are the signature material of our age. They have contributed to improvements in human health, extensions in longevity, and growth of the global economy and supported some of the most significant advances of modern civilization. It is now clear, though, that plastics’ benefits have come at a cost and that plastics have caused great harms to human health, the environment and the economy. These harms arise at every stage of the plastic life cycle. They extend far beyond such obvious damages as beach litter and contaminated mid-ocean gyres and include occupational cancers in plastic workers, childhood leukemia in ‘fenceline’ communities, endocrine disruption, and damage to the developing brains of newborn infants. They are associated with deep social injustices.

    We have created this Special Collection on Plastics and Human Health to direct the attention of health workers, scientists, the press, civil society, and the global public to plastics’ large and largely neglected hazards and to inform the work of government leaders and international negotiators as they strive to fulfill the urgent call of the United Nations Environment Assembly to curb plastic pollution and mitigate its unsustainable impacts by negotiating a Global Plastics Treaty.

  • Special Collection: Environmental Impacts on Infectious Disease

    We have created a special collection about the environmental impacts of infectious disease. With climate change and environmental degradation, infectious diseases are becoming more common and are re-emerging worldwide. This Special Collection addresses epidemiological and mechanistic evidence of such change, with an emphasis on Covid-19. The papers in the Collection embody a “One Health” perspective and discuss issues specific to the Pacific Basin.

  • Special Collection: Strengthening Women’s Leadership in Global Health

    We have created a special collection on the topic of strengthening women's leadership in the global health sphere. Despite advocacy, policies, and advances in gender equality, women still experience inequitable gaps in the global health profession, particularly in leadership. This Special Collection examines an initiative to support emerging women leaders and offers recommendations for global health institutions.
