Studies across a broad range of innovation activities are covered. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: the design, implementation and evaluation of innovations in the global health context; development and implementation of appropriate health technologies; theories and methodologies that support health innovation practice; training and curricula in global health innovation; and interdisciplinary research that highlights the interface between technology, health sciences and social sciences in achieving impactful health innovation.

The journal is now accepting submissions. There are no article processing fees. The first issue of Global Health Innovation will appear in the first quarter of 2018.
