The Pan American Journal of Public Health (PAJPH) is the flagship technical and scientific periodical of the Pan American Sanitary Bureau, which is the Secretariat of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), headquartered in Washington, D.C., United States of America. Established in 1922 as Boletín Panamericano de Sanidad, it subsequently became known as Boletín de la Oficina Sanitaria Panamericana until 1997, when it merged with its English-language counterpart, Bulletin of the Pan American Health Organization (established in 1966), to form the multilingual publication that exists today. The RPSP/PAJPH is a peer-reviewed monthly journal, and effective 2009, is being published in an electronic-only. Full texts of all issues may be accessed through this Web site, directly into SciELO Public Health, or via links from the main international and regional databases and directories, such as MEDLINE, Web of Science, Scopus, DOAJ, and LILACS.
