Pacific Health is a peer-reviewed and open access journal, with an interdisciplinary focus on health, communities and the environments of the Asia Pacific Rim - including Aotearoa New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, East and South East Asia and Australia.

Contributions that incorporate holistic and indigenous 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, arts-based 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.

We are particularly keen to support emerging researchers from the Asia Pacific region to gain skills in authorship, reviewing, and editing.
