The journal says its stories build on the, “extensive experience, strengths, and capacities of faith-based organisations (eg, geographical coverage, influence, and infrastructure) offers a unique opportunity to improve health outcomes.”

The series includes three articles and one story open to the public – as long as users provide free registration details.

The articles and stories are as follows:
