Dear authors and readers...
We have new targets related to TJPH. As you know we are publishing our issue with some delays. Our first target is to publish the issues on time starting from the beginning of 2010. Our second target is to reduce the time of the reviewing process. Thirdly, we want to join the scientific indexes. All of the targets can be achieved with your support and corporations. We are waiting for you to submit articles to the TJPH, and support our journal.
We hope you enjoy this issue of the Turkish Journal of Public Health and we would like to thank all the authors and reviewers.
