New Content Item

Water issues are increasing in magnitude and severity worldwide, and affects health and wellbeing in far-reaching ways. Even though water is a human right addressed in Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, “Clean Water and Sanitation for All”, we are still struggling to fully grasp the impact of the water crisis on peoples´ daily lives.

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.

Notes from the Field

The journal encourages the submission of Notes from the Field. These should describe pragmatic or creative solutions to research under difficult conditions or that describe and analyse the work that practitioners carry out and that may not rely as solidly on methodology as a research article. They should contribute to policy debates and describe the lessons and challenges learned during the fieldwork or data collection. The articles must present a clearly articulated problem and aim to share experiences which benefit researchers, practitioners, and/or policymakers. Authors can choose the article type that is most appropriate for their work.
