The journal of World Health and Population (WHP) provides a forum for researchers and policy makers worldwide to publish original research, reviews and commentaries on health- and population-related topics. WHP encourages the conduct and dissemination of applied research and policy analysis from diverse international settings. It is the goal of WHP to explore ideas, share best practices and enable excellence in healthcare worldwide through publishing contributions by researchers, policy makers and practitioners from these settings.

As of December 2019, Longwoods has published its last issue of World Health & Population (Volume 18, Number 1). This peer-reviewed journal for administrators, academics, researchers and policy leaders has been a labour of love for a long time but it is no longer feasible to continue publishing. will continue to host all past issues online and will make them open access for any and all visitors to read. Moving forward, our sister journal, Healthcare Quarterly, will accept submissions under this topic. Thank you to our editors for all their time and work on this journal and to you our subscribers.
