Global Health Action is a free, online, peer-reviewed journal devoted to public health challenges. The journal, launched in 2008, aims to fill gaps in health information between rich and poor countries. Papers should address the global health agenda and include a strong policy or implementation component. The journal welcomes manuscripts from the developing world and may waive the publication fee for authors who are unable to pay. It also offers a manuscript mentorship scheme to less experienced researchers.
This website was created by the Consortium for Health Policy & Systems Analysis in Africa (CHEPSAA) — a partnership between African and European universities. It is a resource for educators, researchers, students and policymakers interested in health policy and systems research, which aims to understand and improve how societies organise themselves to achieve collective health goals, and how stakeholders interact in policymaking.
The website includes links to recommended reading, organisations, training opportunities and events, and teaching materials.
This 'toolkit', created by the WHO's Health Research Systems Analysis initiative aims to give institutions, policymakers and individuals a systematic way of collecting data on health research and national health systems.
The toolkit includes downloadable surveys to document individual experiences; a guide to assessing the quantity and quality of media communications; a guide to moderating focus groups; and a template for national case studies.
This group of mainly not-for-profit organisations works to protect consumers from counterfeit medicines. The website publishes an encyclopaedia of counterfeit drug incidents documenting details of where, when and how counterfeit drugs or other medical products have been identified in the legitimate drug supply around the world. Press releases, news articles, resources on online pharmacy regulations and contact details of experts in the field are free to access. The site also features relevant research articles and includes a guide advising pharmacists on how to be alert to counterfeit medicines.
This microsite from the Wellcome Trust — a global charitable foundation based in the UK — publishes information on the counterfeit drugs trade, focussing on how it affects both developed and developing countries. In 2009 the organisation held a conference with the American Pharmaceutical Group, which carries out research and development for drugs affecting developing countries, to discuss how to combat counterfeiting, raise awareness and reach consensus on the major challenges. A report summarising the meeting is made available on the site, which also includes presentations and video interviews with key participants.
