Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2018).
We are organizing a Special Issue on maternal and child health in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Environmental exposure in early life to factors including nutrition, parental physiology, psychological state, behaviour and environmental toxins, can alter developmental trajectories and render risk for compromised metabolic and mental health. Attention to the health of both mother and child, particularly at key life stages, will alter an individual’s subsequent risk for chronic illness or impaired development. Promoting a healthy start to life can reduce the long-term potential for adverse developmental outcomes.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to maternal and child health. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities. We look forward to your active contribution to this issue.Dr. Yap-Seng Chong
