As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Call for Papers: Interventions and policy approaches to promote equity in breastfeeding
Providing accessible, high-quality and equitable support for all women who want to breastfeed is a sound social investment. Fair access to programs, policies and infrastructure that promotes, protects and support breastfeeding should be seen as a social justice issue. Hence any social, economic, legal, political or biomedical factor preventing women to implement their right to breastfed should be framed as a health inequity and a social injustice.

Aims and scope
At a time when health inequalities across the world are widespread and often increasing, International Journal for Equity in Health provides a highly visible forum where strong evidence relevant to the search for, and attainment of, equity in health can be found. Served by a globally recognized editorial board, the journal publishes research which improves the understanding of issues that influence the health of populations and shapes evidence-based decisions by health policy-makers.
International Journal for Equity in Health focuses on disseminating influential research which examines the political, policy-related, economic, social, and health systems- and services-related influences, particularly with regard to identifying and understanding the systematic differences in distributions of one or more aspects of health in population groups defined demographically, geographically, or socially.
