Abstract – From the editors

Paul Farmer, Alexander Irwin, Evan Lyon, Vivek Maru, Alicia Ely Yamin

This issue of Health and Human Rights opens a new chapter in the life of the journal. Volume 10, Issue 1, is the first to appear under Paul Farmer’s editorship and the first to be published in an open access online format. The François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights welcomes a new editorial and technical team to support the journal, along with a new cohort of colleagues who have joined the distinguished ranks of our Editorial Board and Senior Advisory Board.

In presenting this issue, we are delighted to reaffirm connections with the readership of the journal’s first decade and to welcome a new public that will discover HHR for the first time in our electronic format. In the coming years, we will strive to maintain the impeccable intellectual standards set by the journal’s previous editors, Jonathan Mann and Sofia Gruskin, while exploring new directions and engaging new constituencies.
