The American Journal of Health Promotion (AJHP) is a peer-reviewed journal on the science of environmental, cultural, societal, and lifestyle changes that support health improvement. Established in 1986, the AJHP was the first peer-reviewed publication devoted exclusively to health promotion. More than 30 years later it remains true to its original goals and has also broadened its reach into institutional, community, and social factors that influence health and well-being.
  • Provide a Forum for the many diverse disciplines that contribute to health promotion.
  • Reduce the gap between health promotion research and practice by delivering the most current and relevant research in the field while addressing its practical application.
  • Improve health equity, reduce health disparities and feature discoveries that expand our understanding of all determinants of health and well-being.

The editorial goal of the American Journal of Health Promotion is to provide a forum for discovery and exchange among the many disciplines involved in health promotion and an interface between researchers and practitioners.
