Pacific Health is a peer-reviewed journal with a focus on health, communities and the environments of the Pacific Rim - including Aotearoa New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, East and South East Asia and Australia. Contributions that incorporate holistic approaches involving, partnership, participation and engagement with communities are most welcome. The journal is interdisciplinary, contemporary, innovative, equity-oriented and encourages submissions which encompass the effects of colonization and western influences on health. We welcome non-traditional and multi-media submissions such as studies using visual methodologies, articles with video abstracts, photovoice, practice-led and artefact-based research. Recent articles have focused on social justice, gender rights, indigenous studies, cultural diversity and sustainability within the region.
