Special Issue "Community-Based Approaches for Reducing Health Inequities"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Global Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020).
Interests: community-based participatory research; interventions; evaluation; prevention research
Despite improvements in health status in many populations, inequities by race/ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and other factors remain. Structural and social determinants of health directly and indirectly influence health inequities. For this Special Issue, we invite submissions that advance methodology and statistical analytical techniques in elucidating causal mechanisms underlying health inequities, research that examines community-based interventions to reduce health inequities, and academic-community partnerships to address health inequities. Research that acknowledges the complex, dynamic nature of multilevel influences on health inequities is encouraged. We are also particularly interested in studies that test interventions that target policy, systems, and environmental change. Research may be either theoretical or empirical and can include systematic reviews.
