      *********

      To focus research, attention, and the awareness of the medical community on
      this challenge, JAMA plans to publish a theme issue on global health that
      targets the world's major health problems and focuses on developing
      countries. Thus, we invite papers that address avoidable and preventable
      health problems and diseases within the developing world. Reports of
      research and outcomes-based assessments of reductions in risk and exposure,
      interventions, programs, and health services to address these problems
      within developing countries will be given highest priority. Research aimed
      at improving local and global surveillance systems, tools, knowledge, and
      expertise to monitor, control, and prevent disease and promote health in
      locally relevant, affordable, and sustainable ways are welcome. We also
      encourage the submission of manuscripts that address ways to improve and
      sustain local research capacity and technology and knowledge transfer. Such
      studies must include locally defined and relevant applications and practice
      at national or community levels, and they should consider the potential for
      broader-global-applications of such research.

      The JAMA theme issue on global health will be published in June 2004. Papers
      submitted by January 15, 2004, will have the best chance for acceptance. All
      submitted manuscripts will undergo the journal's usual, rigorous editorial
      evaluation and peer review; acceptance cannot be guaranteed. Please follow
      the JAMA Instructions for Authors for manuscript preparation and submission.
