    COVID-19 Pandemic: Perceptions from Australia and the Asia Pacific.
    The Special COVID Issue was not a planned or promoted issue but has been published as a direct result of authors submitting articles on the topic. In fact, some 17 articles were submitted with 13 articles being published. This represents articles predominantly from Asia Pacific countries, some eleven countries that reflect both the authors origin and the health system of the country on which they report.

    This is a significant moment in health systems globally. The Journal believes it is important to record the pandemic event as perceived by academics and health professionals so that their voices are heard and that this might provide a basis for further research and publication as events unfurl and the pandemic continues.

  • Vol 13 No 3 (2018)

    This is the third and final issue for 2018. We continue in transition from publishing three issues a year to the concept of publish as ready. This has resulted in delays to processing and publishing, so we extend our apologies to both authors and readers. We currently have some twenty articles in review and delays are also occurring in this area in finding willing and receptive reviewers. We would appreciate authors suggesting reviewers as they submit articles.  On behalf of Yaping Liu we extend seasons greetings to you all and look forward to a first in 2019 in our new livery!

  • Vol 13 No 2 (2018)

    In the issue (Volume 13 Issue 2) we present an interesting range of articles. First, we need to advise that our change to a publish when ready journal continues but we are still in phased transition based on software and technical issues. Apologies to authors and readers for these delays and we hope to be fully functional by the third issue this year. The Editorial in this issue Deals with the issue of the UN approach to sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) and how best to address health challenges resulting from factors associated with the impact of socio-economic determinants of health (SOEDoH). It raises the question of the managerial role in these contexts.

We conclude our contributions for this issue, at this stage with the contribution of Conquest and colleagues who in their research article describe a comparison across the Australian landscape of three payment scheme systems for public paediatric dental services and describes implications around access for those not closely located to available services.

  • Vol 12 No 3 (2017)

    The cover for this issue is a word cloud taken from the invited and submitted Chris Selby Oration presentation from Emeritus Professor Stephen Leeder in 2017 with a clear emphasis on ‘procrastination and health’. The editorial in this issue examines Leeder’s topic and advances reasons why procrastination may have become habitual and how we might get past continuing to admire the problem and to make progress in effective health reform a priority. 

  • Vol 12 No 2 (2017)

  • 10th year anniversary edition Vol 11 No 3 (2016)

    In this issue:
    This issue represents the 10th year anniversary edition of the Asia Pacic Journal of Health Management (APJHM) that was established by the Australasian College of Health Services Management (ACHSM). Due recognition of those who contributed to the development of the Journal is expressed in the Editorial contributed by Bill Lawrence. To recognise and celebrate this milestone the editorial team agreed to publish a special issue anniversary edition. It was decided to be an invited article only edition around the theme ‘What problem is being solved? Critical Issues in health systems management’. This theme is an adaption of a similar challenge issued more than a decade before.  

  • Vol 11 No 2 (2016)

    In this issue
    In this second Issue we present a range of articles from authors about health service and health systems management topics, on this occasion from across five different countries’ health systems in the Asia Pacific. We also report on a response from a reader to an article that appeared in the first issue, 11(1) of this year. 

  • Vol 11 No 1 (2016)

    Our cover utilises a word cloud design to reflect the range and complexity of issues raised by our authors in their articles. In our first article, Day and South provide an analysis of management practice that questions health systems improvement as a means of achieving real gains and also asks if it is unnecessary work. They question if these approaches can be effective in avoiding major systems failures while supporting the relevance of timely, effective performance measures at the organisational level rather than comprehensive data analysis that does effect improvement.
