Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to introduce this Special Edition on “Epidemiology and Global Health”. A disease that appears in a special geographic area can be presented everywhere. Currently, more than ever, discussing global health issues is of high importance. In order to improve global health, the United Nations have included a third sustainable goal that focuses on “Good Health and Well-Being”. The global health community is dealing with many health challenges such as non-communicable diseases (e.g., cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases), drug resistance, health inequalities, immunisation, communicable diseases, suicide, air pollution and climate change, healthy ageing, etc. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it clearer than ever that collaboration between countries and coordinated work is needed to address health challenges. This Special Edition aims to present aspects of contemporary health issues both on its epidemiology aspect as well as on their general impact on global health. This edition is not focused on a specific geographic area, while use of both qualitative and quantitative methods are very welcome. Additionally, articles that focus on social and cultural determinants of health, on measurement of health status and healthcare systems are of high priority. To some extent, articles that use interdisciplinary approach and aim to change the health behaviour through education are welcome.
