Emerging Authors Programme - building research publication capacity in low- and middle-income countries
Local researchers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) are key to understanding and overcoming global cardiovascular disease (CVD). They are knowledgeable about relevant health problems and understand the cultural, social, economic, and political contexts that influence patterns of disease and the effectiveness of interventions for CVD and associated risk factors. As there are limited scientific publications on CVDs from LMICs, The Journal of Human Hypertension is proud to present a special collection of publications from researchers in LMICs that highlight valuable findings and broaden the global evidence base on CVD prevention and control. We hope you enjoy this collection of informative publications.
