The Alma Mata Journal of Global Health (AMjGH) aims to bring work and research from postgraduate and undergraduate degrees across the UK and abroad into the public forum, to contribute to discussion and debate on how best to improve health and reduce disease globally.
AmjGH calls for graduates of such courses to submit high-quality primary research, essays, features, commentaries, profile or career experience pieces, that would otherwise sit on a memory stick or on file within a university, never to see life of day. There is a valuable, large body of work that can contribute – we hope to continue to bring this to our members and the public at large.
