The Special Issue “Community and Family-Focused Public Health and Sustainable Development” is part of the renowned International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. This Special Issue encompasses applications in novel aspects connected with sustainability issues in community and family-focused public health studies. Contributions with a significant impact on solving public health problems at the family and community level are particularly welcome. All types of scientific papers, including review articles, qualify for publication, as long as they fall under this Special Issue’s remit and are relevant to audiences worldwide. Currently, the term 'family health' is most commonly used in aspects of mother and child health, and reproductive health. It is rare for family health to include the family as an important context for health development, including all family members and the family’s social environment. We therefore particularly encourage authors of scientific research covering issues of the impact of the family and the environment in which the family lives and functions on its members’ health presently and in the future. In addition, we are especially interested in scientific reports on social, economic, and health inequalities in the context of achieving sustainable development goals.
