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.

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:
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.

Mitali Wroczynski, Head of Strategic Partnerships, Global Health and Global Health Security; Dr Elisa Roma, Programmes and Partnerships Manager; and Amy Hilton, Head of Institutional Marketing at the award ceremony in Geneva.
Mitali says there is a need to look at the critical needs of healthcare systems worldwide beyond the identification and treatment of infectious diseases, and to also be mindful of non-communicable diseases. “
It’s important to build resilient healthcare systems so that a workforce is capable of dealing with anything. When there is an outbreak, it’s also about maintaining the healthcare system where the outbreak is happening."
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.
