The social public health systems (SPHS) in both the developed and developing worlds have profound impacts on social sustainability. Both the notions of social public health system and sustainability have expanded substantially over time due to rising complexities of societies, global mobility of workforce, increasing globalization and regionalization of economies and socio-economic forces, to name just a few. Nonetheless, as a research topic, the nexus and inter-relationships between the two critically important notions of today's science appear to have been underresearched.
In the intersection of the two, the following areas of research have emerged to be of critical importance for the scientific enterprise:
- Gender issues, reproductive health, environmental and occupation health
- Increasing mobility, migration workers and social vunerability in relation to social health and sustainability matters
- Emerging socio-cultural and economic values in SPHS and sustainability concerns
- The role of healthcare and health services managent and social sustainability
- Impacts of Social networks and technologies on social health
- Education in SPHS and sustainability
- Institutions building, regulatory frameworks and political agenda in coping with rising complexity in SPHS and sustainability problems
- Socio-economic inequality and the future of SPHS
- Information, databases and science policy in improving the knowledge base about SPHS and sustainability
- Evidence-based policymaking in SPHS and sustainability
This Special Issue invites your academic contributions, i.e., research articles, review articles, essays, perspectives, to help enhance our understanding of the above-mentioned missing nexus, from different angles of analysis, and also to improve the future agenda on addressing issues that hamper SPHS and sustainability.
