Effective health care interventions are underutilized in the developing world, and income-related disparities in use are large. Journal of Healthcare in Developing Countries JHCDC is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on contemporary health care issues of medically underserved communities. JHCDC addresses such diverse areas as health care access, quality, costs, legislation, regulations, health promotion, and disease prevention in developing countries in Asia, in North and Central America, the Caribbean, and sub-Saharan Africa. Recently, JHCDC has expanded its scope to include internally dispossessed indigenous populations worldwide, as well as the populations enumerated above. Regular features include research papers and reports, literature reviews, policy analyses, and evaluations of noteworthy health care programs, as well as a regular column written by members of the Association of Clinicians for the Developing Countries.
