"Juxtaposition" is a student publication published once a year by students at the University of Toronto. Originally started out as an online magazine, the Magazine has been expanding recently, and is due to publish its first issue in print in November 2007. Articles focus on global health and international development issues. The magazine is associated with the University's Centre for International Health [http://intlhealth.med.utoronto.ca/] , the University of Toronto Students' Union, the University of Toronto International Health Program [http://www.utihp.com] , and the Global Health Specialist Program [http://www.hmb.utoronto.ca] . The magazine's office is headquartered at 21 Sussex Avenue on the University of Toronto's St. George campus.


"Juxtaposition Global Health Magazine" (JGHM) is the University of Toronto's premiere peer-reviewed journalistic student publication on global health, in association with the Centre for International Health. With a special emphasis on topics that particularly impact the poor and marginalized internationally, "Juxtaposition" explores the essential health issues of our time in a novel and dynamic forum. The name "Juxtaposition" comes from the verb to juxtapose, defined as "the act or instance of placing two or more things side by side." Wherever possible, "Juxtaposition" seeks to include contrasting perspectives on global health issues in a wider social, economic, political and legal context.

Originally started as an online magazine (Juxtaposition eZine), "Juxtaposition" was founded by two University of Toronto alumni, Kadia Petricca and Michelle Chakkalackal in 2003. During the 2006/07 academic year, "Juxtaposition" went through a vigorous process of restructuring and institutionalizing which aimed to prepare the journal for future expansion and growth.


The magazine was created to highlight the social, political, legal, economic and medical issues that are affecting the health of people throughout the world. “Juxtaposition” comes from the verb to juxtapose, defined as “the act or instance of placing two or more things side by side.” Correspondingly, the magazine aims to contrast perspectives raised by different disciplines, such as engineering, law, economics, medical anthropology, business, and health sciences, and to explore global health issues in a thought-provoking manner. The objectives of Juxtaposition Global Health Magazine are to: a) critically analyze and promote dialogue about both ‘conventional’ global health issues and ‘non-conventional’ issues;

b) provide a forum for student led dissemination of global health information;

c) promote and showcase the work and research of faculty, staff and students in global health taking place through the University of Toronto; d) raise awareness of global health issues among the University of Toronto community: student, faculty, and staff;

e) promote an interdisciplinary approach in problem solving for global health concerns that encourages non-medical disciplines to liaise with medical disciplines; and,

f) To provide unique leadership opportunities for students, faculty and alumni in the field of international health and media publications


"Juxtaposition"'s organizational structure consists of an Editorial Board which oversees the operation of the Magazine's Editorial Division and Production/Publicity/Sponsorship Division. Each division has its own Editor-in-Chief.


While the Magazine's first three issues are theme-based, beginning with the Spring 2008 issue, articles will instead appear in the following sections (including but not limited to):

*Aboriginal Health
*Refugee and Immigration Health
*International Relations and Peace and Conflict
*Mental Health
*Women's and Children's Health
*Men's Health
*Health Policy

The themes of the first three issues were:Volume 1, Issue 1 (Fall 2005): Health and Human RightsVolume 1, Issue 2 (Spring 2006): Poverty, Affluence, and the Social GradientVolume 2, Issue 1 (Fall 2007): Fear and Empowerment

Circulation and branches

The Fall 2007 issue (Volume 2, Issue 1) will be the first to be released in print copy on December 4th. 1000 copies will be distributed across the University of Toronto St. George campus, as well as editorial and photo contributors from around the world.
