This special issue of the British Journal of Haematology highlights many leading haematological topics in Lower and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) or perhaps more engagingly – Global Haematology. The review articles are based, largely but not exclusively, on invited talks in Global Haematology given at the joint British Society of Haematology/International Society of Haematology Scientific Meeting held in Glasgow in 2016. These sessions reflect a growing emphasis on post-graduate medicine and haematology across the world. The realisation that specialist knowledge, research and care can now make a real contribution to health care in LMICs have allowed medical societies to reach out and encourage those working across Africa and Asia. Fittingly, both the American and British Societies of Haematology have recently developed programmes to encourage and support education, training and research in Global Haematology.
