A new, online journal has been launched, containing open access articles relating to infectious diseases.

Infectious Diseases of Poverty ( http://www.idpjournal.com ) has been launched at the Second Global Symposium on Health Systems Research on 2nd November, in partnership with the National Institute of Parasitic Diseases (NIPD), China CDC.

The journal will contain a range of aricles relating to infectious diseases in poor regions of the world, including health systems research.

The new journal welcomes all groups who are engaged in research on infectious diseases - scientific investigators, academic societies, physicians, decision makers, research funders, patient advocacy groups, educational organizations. Welcome and join us!"
