The International Journal of Translational Medical Research and Public Health (IJTMRPH) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that publishes original research, review articles, field studies, and commentaries on all aspects of applied or translational medical research, global and public health.
The journal publishes papers that can be applied to global and public health practices, programs, and policies. The journal is passionate about papers that contribute to local and international efforts to improve the health of populations and save lives around the world.
