About this Special Issue
The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the need to achieve the 17 SDG’s. More than ever before, there is a risk of an increasing gap in health and well-being between those who have and those who do not with the latter falling behind the SDGs. The pandemic provides also further proof that health and well-being depend on all dimensions of societies – health and well-being are part of all SDG’s!
PHR invites high quality Reviews and Policy Briefs that put health and well-being in the context of the U.N. sustainable development goals (SDGs).
If you would like to submit an Original Article, please consider the International Journal of Public Health.
The Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+) – the owner of IJPH and PHR - is an academic guest of the postponed EXPO 2020 taking place January 2022 in Dubai. With this Call, the two journals of the SSPH+ bring the voice of public health sciences to the EXPO2020. All papers approved for publication will enter a competition for a Best Article Award in each journal.
The GLOBEQUITY program of IJPH offers a limited number of waivers for first authors from low and middle income countries!
WIN A BEST ARTICLE - AWARD RULES
Please note, as of February 2022, the award competition is delayed due to the delayed peer reviews we are facing as a matter of the pandemic. We will inform all authors about the new date.

Reviewers and Editors of this Call, the IJPH and PHR editors and the SSPH+ and ASPHER audience to vote anonymously for best article based on the title and final Abstract.
