Special Issue "Global Community Child Health"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Children's Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
In this Special Issue we propose to consider community-based interventions that impact on child health and well-being around the globe. In addition to rural community-based initiatives, given that most children now live in cities, we are also interested in urban initiatives. Although Sustainable Development Goal 3 is our primary focus, we are keen to hear about multi-sectoral interventions with a synergistic impact across the SDGs.
I have accepted the offer to Guest Edit a Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (where we have been publishing some of of our Nepal injury work) devoted to community child health initiatives. We invite contributions arising from child-focussed, community-based initiatives that may be multisectoral—especially urban-based intiatives.
