During the course of a life, a person’s exposure to different risk factors changes and evolves. From malnutrition in the womb to occupational hazards, humans have to tackle multiple challenges.
Depending on the predominant social and environmental factors where a population is inserted, the pervasiveness of social determinants of health will determine the exposure to risk factors. Risk factors differ and evolve across the lifespan, and have particular importance at certain ages, including exposure to literacy, nutrition and lifestyle habits, environmental and occupational exposure, medication and drug use, and diseases. How populations and individuals deal with risk and its perception, learning mechanisms and coping strategies, how they change and evolve through life, and how to develop health-promotion strategies and implement interventions targeted to specific age groups, are all matters of interest for researchers.
This Special Issue aims to present a broad updated view of risk factor changes and evolution through the lifespan. Contributions from all over the globe are encouraged, in order to provide an image of the best practices and policies each country has in place to deal with this ever-present concern.
Researchers are invited to submit original research articles, using any study design, including case studies, implementation/interventional studies, cohort studies, cross-sectional studies, as well as reviews and meta-analyses.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
