On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the global pandemic of COVID-19. More than a year later, the pandemic has highlighted the fragility of the health system and the consequences for people’s wellbeing. The significant impact that the pandemic has had on public health has spared no part of the health system. Indeed, scientific evidence shows significant changes in access to primary and specialist care, available resources in terms of healthcare professionals, trends in chronic degenerative diseases, the effects of isolation on children, on adolescents and mental health in general, habits and lifestyles (nutrition and physical activity), delay in early diagnosis, and increased overall mortality. Not least, the pandemic has highlighted even more the existence of health inequalities such as chronic health conditions, and unequal living and working conditions have inexorably increased the prevalence and severity of COVID-19 infections.
This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) focused on public health during and after the COVID-19 pandemic offers the opportunity to publish original articles dealing with various aspects related to public health. The aim is to offer, through different multidisciplinary approaches, wider knowledge on the effects and consequences of the pandemic and the change in health behaviors.
