IJERPH invites submissions to Special Issue devoted to addressing important research topics in public health and epidemiology globally.
This Special Issue of IJERPH follows the international conference of Global Health and Epidemiology, which was successfully held at the University of Wolverhampton, UK, on 20-23 August 2018 (www.wlv.ac.uk/globalhealth), with which IJERPH was involved and sponsored two best conference presentations awards.
Global health is "the application of the principles of public health to health problems and challenges that transcend national boundaries and to the complex array of global and local forces that affect them”. It implies a global perspective on public health problems, using epidemiological methods.
To improve population health globally and its impact on health care and economics, in this Special Issue we highlight health inequalities locally, nationally and internationally and their solutions, including health systems and policy making.
This Special Issue welcomes original studies, review papers and commentary papers that address global health and epidemiology. Of particular interest are the following themes:
- Cardiovascular Diseases
- Dementia and Mental Health
- Environmental and Occupational Health
- Maternal and Child Health
- Social Epidemiology and Public Health in Developing Countries
- Epidemiological Methods and Health Data Analysis
