Spotlight on Global Health Research
In November 2020, we published a special issue of International Health that shone a spotlight on global health. From research ethics to decolonisation and transnational research partnerships, the special issue covers how global health research is a discipline in which it is highly possible to cause more harm than good.
The aim is to identify work that acknowledges this complexity but demonstrates best practice in the pursuit of fair and equitable approaches to global health research.
All the articles are open access and free to read.
The guest editors for the special issue, Spotlight on Global Health Research, are:
