Special Issue "Current Health Challenges for Child and Adolescent"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 14 June 2021.
Interests: My research focuses on drugs such as opioids or tobacco ( and its exposure i.e. secand- ahdn thrid-hand smoke), screen exposure, and addiction. And I have little experience working on mental health, self-harm, and its association with other physical diseases.
Interests: My main area of expertise is the epidemiology of tobacco use and lung cancer prevention activities, with a focus on women. Also interested in many other areas of public health, such as emerging zoonoses and food-related illnesses and nutrition disorders.
The aim of this Special Issue is to update researchers on health challenges currently facing children and adolescents. The main health issues of interest include relatively new concepts such as the challenges and burden of the coronavirus pandemic, exposure to third-hand smoke, use of electronic cigarettes, consumption of new drugs, screen exposure (including social-media use), or diets high in ultra-processed foods. Moreover, areas where health outcomes are falling short will also be considered, which according to the World Health Organization include injuries, mental health, violence, HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases, early pregnancy and childbirth, alcohol and drugs, obesity, nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, undernutrition and obesity, physical activity (inactivity), tobacco use, and rights of adolescents.
