Education for Health was established and has come of age under the guiding hand of the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, long its editorial home. This spring and summer, the journal has left this first home and traveled "down the road" from Maastricht to Pune, India. Timing and support are always important issues in the decision to find a new home. The journal's maturity and a complex of factors including resources, directions, and the need for change meant the time was right for a new home. The road to a new journal home has been neither straight nor easy to negotiate. But the good work of the past, steady support from the journal's long-term supporters, and the new partners met on the highway have made the road and route from Europe to a new continent possible and, so far, a success. Thankfully, Skype and the Internet kept us all connected and moving toward our destination. We have arrived safe and sound in Pune.

In this issue, Dr. Payal Bansal introduces herself to you as the new Managing Editor of the journal, and she introduces the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) in Pune as EfH's new editorial office home. You will find her introductions informative, and readers who rely on the journal for new ideas in health professions education and community responsibility will find her evident talents, enthusiasm, and passion reassuring. The journal remains in great hands.

We once again express our deep appreciation to Maastricht University for all that its people have done for the journal over more than 20 years, especially Marie-Louise Panis, Pauline Vluggen, and Angelique van den Jeuvel. We also thank Rural and Remote Health and its administration for its steady support in providing an online publication platform for Education for Health (including during times of transition in our road traveled).

We are excited about our new home in India, with Dr. Bansal, Dr. Gaurang Baxi, who is the journal's adept new manager of manuscript submissions, and Dr. Arun Jamkar, Vice Chancellor of MUHS and new member of the journal's editorial board who had a vision of how Education for Health could fit within the mission of MUHS. Finally, we thank Dr. William Burdick of the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) for his quiet, but effective leadership and support in linking EfH with MUHS.

There have been the expected curves in the road the journal has traveled, but it has been guided successfully along the curves and through the intersections and has arrived safely at its new home. Rest assured that we are the same journal with the same editors and reviewers and same mission.

Enjoy this issue, the first handled by the able new staff at MUHS. You will, of course, notice that the journal has a new look because it also has a new publisher, Wolters Kluwer Health/Medknow. We will talk about this more in our next issue.
