In each issue of the Journal of Public Health Policy (JPHP), we include an article commissioned by the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA), written by leading authors in the field. Edited by Bettina Borisch and Marta Lomazzi at the WFPHA, we are pleased to make the Federation’s Pages free to view in celebration of JPHP’s continuing affiliation with the WFPHA. We hope you enjoy them!
