Despite great improvements in public health worldwide during the last decades, much still remains to be done in terms of making our society healthier. As different people have different health needs, we have to prepare and adapt health interventions accordingly, taking into consideration that many aspects of health are intertwined in multifaceted social spheres. Hence, communication has become a key protagonist in public health; therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to stimulate the field of public health communication, and to eventually add value in our everyday understanding of health and healthcare.
This Special Issue offers an opportunity to publish high-quality interdisciplinary research and reviews that report on the wide range of topics related to public health and communication. We welcome manuscripts specifically focusing on public health policy/advocacy, health promotion, health beliefs, patient satisfaction, perceptions of health, provider–patient relationships, health risk messages, communication networks within health organizations, social media, health literacy and numeracy, health education, health information, health journalism, fake news, media representations of health, social media, eHealth, and tele-health, as well as crisis/outbreak communication, risk communication, and public understanding of science.
