Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

What role does place play in the relationship between environment and (public) health? Is it passive (a foundation? A backdrop?) or is it active (a moderator? A mediator? A determinant?).  The papers in this Special Issue will explore these relationships across a range of places (North America, Europe, Central and East Asia, and Sub Saharan Africa), a range of spatial scales (global, national, regional, and local), and a range of environmental exposures (physical environment, built environment, and social/cultural/political environments), in order to provide place with pride of place.
