Today planning and management are widely recognized as vitally important for the development of health and for the efficiency and control of those activities that impact upon health. At the same time the economic circumstances facing countries world-wide present a great challenge for health planning and management. The aim of this quarterly Journal is to respond to this challenge by offering a forum and outlet for publications that direct attention to major issues in health planning and management systems and practices. Overall the intention is to maintain a sound balance between practice and theory from a variety of schools of thought. The Journal is explicitly international and multidisciplinary in scope and appeal: articles about planning and management issues in countries at various stages of social cultural and economic development are to be welcomed as are those directed at the different levels (national regional local etc.) of the health sector. Manuscripts are invited from a spectrum of different disciplines (medicine management and the social sciences) provided that these advance our knowledge and understanding of the health sector broadly defined. The Journal thereby brings together work which in the past has been too widely scattered throughout the literature. Editorial Policy The Editors welcome contributions from teachers researchers policy-makers and practitioners whose knowledge skills and visions bear broadly on the planning and management of the health sector. The overriding criterion for full-length manuscripts is originality a high scholarly quality and genuine interest to a wide audience. In addition to publishing original articles the Editors encourage submission of: review articles; short notes on conceptual difficulties and technical developments; summaries of published research findings; book reviews; news of forthcoming colloquia; and summary proceedings of important national and international symposia falling within the aims and scope of the Journal.
