The Critical Voice of Public Health Public health lies at the centre of health care reform and is being hotly debated around the world. Today public health issues are impinging on people, policy makers and the day-to-day concerns of health practitioners and researchers more than ever before, increasing the need for critical analysis, research and reflection. Critical Public Health provides a multidisciplinary forum for those researching and developing public health practice, helping them to keep pace with recent rapid change and providing a forum for critique and debate that can look beyond narrower public health concerns to the social and cultural implications of the new public health. An International Forum Critical Public Health (CPH) is a journal for researchers and practitioners working in public health, health promotion and related fields and brings together international scholarship to provide critical analyses of theory and practice, reviews of literature and explorations of new ways of working. The journal publishes high quality work that is open and critical in perspective and which reports on current research and debates in the field. CPH encourages an interdisciplinary focus and features innovative analyses. It is committed to exploring and debating issues of equity and social justice -particularly issues of sexism, racism and other forms of oppression. Originally titled Radical Community Medicine, CPH has been in existence since 1979 providing 'cutting edge' thinking in public health and related fields. Since 1991 the journal has used a theme-based format providing publications to a large constituency, though concentrated in the UK. The journal has now moved to a fully international, refereed article format and welcomes contributions from all those wishing to publish work in public health and related areas. Who Is The Journal For? Whilst primarily of interest to those working within health and related areas, it includes contemporary empirical and theoretical work from a wide range of disciplines, including anthropology, communications, cultural studies, epidemiology, health studies, health promotion, history, politics, sociology, medicine, public health, social policy, psychology, nursing, geography, ethnicity, and gender studies as well as basic and applied sciences that contribute to the promotion of health and prevention of disease. It brings all these disciplines to bear on world-wide public health topics in broad focus. The journal is an essential resource for a wide audience of practitioners, researchers, policymakers, planners, managers and academics involved in health debates, including doctors, nurses, community workers, policy analysts, social workers, educators, town planners, geographers, communications experts and others. The content of the journal is of international interest and reflects public health debate around the world. The journal includes short report, comment and book review sections.
