JOURNAL OF PUBLIC HEALTH MANAGEMENT AND PRACTICE
The Journal of Public Health Management and Practice (JPHMP) offers timely and relevant information about population-based health, encouraging scientifically based innovation and reform. Contributors include practitioners in public health agencies, teaching institutions, and other settings. Effective public health management requires a combination of scientific knowledge with skills in community organization. A broad range of peerreviewed articles elucidates how scientific investigations and population-based applications work together to improve community health. JPHMP is published six times a year; each issue includes a cluster of articles on one aspect of public health management, such as directly observed therapy in the treatment of tuberculosis, prevention of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection and sexually transmitted diseases, managed care, performance measures, academic-practice partnerships, and bioterrorism. By focusing on actual practice, JPHMP facilitates the sharing of new initiatives to improve community health and is a forceful advocate for the health of the public.
