Welcome to Annals of Global Health,
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.
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.
Authors of articles accepted for publication in Annals of Global Health will be asked to pay an Article Publication Charge (APC) to cover publication costs. This charge can normally be sourced from your funder or institution. We are committed to supporting authors from all countries to publish their work in Annals of Global Health regardless of national income level, and to achieve this goal, we waive the Article Publication Charge for manuscripts where all authors are from low-income or lower-middle-income countries (as defined by the World Bank).
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 "Human Health and Ocean Pollution", "Building Health Research Capacity in Rwanda; A Multi-Year Journey", and "2020 Year of the Nurse". Global health workers interested in developing a Special Collection are strongly encouraged to contact the Managing Editor in advance to discuss the project.

Countless reports have warned us of the existential threat climate change poses to all of us. The latest August IPCC Report showed that the last time atmospheric CO2 levels were this high was millions of years ago. Worldwide we are seeing another year of lethal wildfires, water crises and extreme weather conditions.
The central challenge now is to mobilize political will across sectors and internationally to scale up known, effective solutions that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate against the effects of climate change. This symposium, The Road to COP27: Climate Change and Health Through Three Lenses, will include presentations from experts from around the world who will share high impact solutions that will address climate change and improve health outcomes. Leaders from the African continent will share what should be in the COP27 meeting in Africa in 2022.
Attendees will be able to provide suggestions and ask questions. Solutions from this symposium will be shared publicly and with policymakers including at the COP26 meeting in Glasgow in an open access document.
