Manuscript Topics
One of the major public health challenges has been to develop effective strategies with a great public health impact in combating disease and promoting health of individuals, communities and society as a whole. A growing number of studies show that evidence-based health promotion actions and policies have the potential to improve the health of populations and reduce health inequalities. Nevertheless, most vulnerable and disadvantaged populations remain underserved and understudied. AIMS Public Health will publish a special issue on health promotion and disease prevention among most vulnerable populations as defined by ethnicity, socio-economic status, geography, gender, age, risk status and identified as at-risk for health disparities. Manuscripts that present qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods are welcomed, as well as theoretical, implementation and evaluation studies.

Paper submission
All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed before their acceptance for publication.
The deadline for manuscript submission is 31 March 2015.
