Aims and Scope (from publisher): Aim:
The aim of the Hawaiʻi Journal of Health & Social Welfare is to advance knowledge about health and social welfare, with a focus on the diverse peoples and unique environments of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific region.

In 1941, a journal then called The Hawaiʻ i Medical Journal was founded by the Hawaiʻ i Medical Association (HMA). The HMA had been incorporated in 1856 under the Hawaiian monarchy. In 2008, a separate journal called the Hawaiʻi Journal of Public Health was established by a collaborative effort between the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health and the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Office of Public Health Studies. In 2012, these two journals merged to form the Hawaiʻi Journal of Medicine & Public Health, and this journal continued to be supported by the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health and the John A. Burns School of Medicine.

In 2018, the number of partners providing financial backing for the journal expanded, and to reflect this expansion the name of the journal was changed in 2019 to the Hawaiʻi Journal of Health & Social Welfare. The lead academic partners are now the six units of the UH College of Health Sciences and Social Welfare, including the John A. Burns School of Medicine, UH Public Health, the Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work, the School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene, the UH Cancer Center, and the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy. Other partners are the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health and the UH Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. The journal is fiscally managed by University Health Partners of Hawaiʻi.
