The Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved is an academic journal founded in 1990 by David Satcher, then President of Meharry Medical College who later became the 16th Surgeon General of the United States. JHCPU is published by the Johns Hopkins University Press for Meharry and is affiliated with the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved.

The journal covers the health and health care of medically underserved populations in North and Central America and the Caribbean, and topics such as access to health care, quality, costs, regulation, legislation, and disease prevention. Articles take the form of scholarly research and expert opinion, as well as policy analyses and book reviews. Each issue also contains an ACU Column and a Heroes and Great Ideas Column.

The current editor is Virginia Brennan of Meharry Medical College. The journal is published quarterly in February, May, August, and November, with occasional supplemental issues. It is listed as one of the nation's leading Health Policy journals by the Kaiser Family Foundation and as an essential core journal in Public Health Practice by the Medical Library Association's Core Public Health Journals Project.
