Sharing knowledge

New knowledge is generated rapidly yet often diffuses too slowly. Even affordable, lifesaving therapies can take over a decade to become widely used.

Ensuring that knowledge is disseminated quickly, effectively, and widely is our priority.

We publish The BMJ and more recently, BMJ Global Health, both of which provide a route to the publication and dissemination of research and best practices in global health and health security.

Our specialty journals collection of more than 70 titles, including The BMJ and the veterinary collection published on behalf of the British Veterinary Association, were read online by 36m unique users last year. We also publish special collections and supplements in partnership with global organisations:

  • Antimicrobial resistance in SE Asia (WHO-SEARO)
  • Sustainable Development Goals (Graduate Institute for International Relations, Geneva)
  • Universal Health Coverage (Harvard University)
  • Access to Medicines (WHO)
  • Governance of multisectoral collaborations for health (UNICEF

Within its first year, BMJ Global Health is already contributing to a healthier, more equal world. The journal covers all aspects of global health with a particular interest in submissions that address the underfunded area of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

Editor-in-Chief Dr Seye Abimbola's highlights over the past year include an intense debate around the reform of the WHO, the publication of important papers regarding the ongoing conflict in Syria and the threat of Boko Haram in Nigeria, as well as articles discussing the management of infectious diseases such as malaria and HIV.

Convening people

The actors involved in global health are changing, and a multi-sectoral, cross-cutting approach is essential for tackling the priority issues.

We have extensive experience in bringing together thought leaders, policy makers, healthcare professionals and senior stakeholders from all sectors with an interest and mission for improving global health and global health security.
Our programme of events collectively attracts more than 10,000 delegates annually from over 85 countries, including: Contact Lalitha Bhagavatheeswaran to talk to us today.

Mitali Wroczynski works closely with ministries of health, agriculture, and defence to influence policy decision-making, and develop new global health partnerships.

She pioneered BMJ’s clinical decision support training initiative that supports healthcare professionals working in low and middle-income countries to improve the detection, diagnosis, and management of infectious diseases and contributes to building health system resilience. Mitali has also played a key role in making risk communication a central issue for managing major infectious disease outbreaks, epidemics or pandemics, as part of the EU-funded programme, TELL ME.
