Our journalism

Our journalism explores bold approaches to public health, with a rigorous focus on what works, what doesn’t, and why. We support public health leaders, policy makers, advocates, and researchers in improving lives, erasing inequities, and driving societal change. Harvard Public Health magazine updates regularly on the web and in print three times a year.
