Special Issue "Global Health and Infection"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Economics".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2022.
We call for papers for a Special Issue that focuses on Global Health and Infection. The interconnected fluid network formed by the flow of cash, commodities, humans, and vectors helps spread infectious diseases among conurbations in this globalized world. The current emergence and spread of COVID-19 is actually the epitome of globalization. Infectious agents are experiencing a great bonanza from this newfangled globalization marked by faster travel and freer trade. Infectious diseases not only affect individual health but also negatively impact quality of life, social wellbeing, equity, employment, income, national security, and even political stability.
The aim of this Special Issue is to help disseminate innovative scholarship and strategies to advance global health, with a particular focus on infection and its far-reaching ramifications.
Original research, reviews, perspectives, and research notes on any topic relevant to global health and infection are welcome. Multidisciplinary manuscripts related to all aspects of communicable diseases of global significance and/or their association with non-communicable diseases will be considered. Additionally, manuscripts on health equity, global health security, implementation research, social determinants of health, disease burden, population health, and other urgent and neglected global health issues are welcome.
The Journal will adhere to rigorous standards of peer review and consider all manuscripts on the basis of ethical and methodological integrity and potential to contribute to the extant body of knowledge. We welcome quality articles in the above areas from scholars from around the world.
