Health Economics is a specialty section of Frontiers in Public Health which aims to foster a professional debate among the academic and industrial arena of health economists, medical care professionals and governmental authorities alike.
We welcome submissions from all areas of theoretical and applied health economics, health policy and clinical research with interdisciplinary implications. Submissions should be prepared according to the guidelines of Frontiers, which offer a large diversity in types of articles.
Major areas covered by the Health Economics section are:
The traditional geographic focus of most field journals on the high-income OECD markets creates a serious gap in professional literature. We aim to exploit this niche developmental opportunity in relation to the Health Economics and Policy challenges among the Third World Nations and core Emerging Markets such as the BRICS and rising Asian economies. Some of these issues are Rapid Population Aging, Prosperity Diseases, Formal and Informal Care for the Elderly, Changes in Life Style and Nutrition, Consequences of Accelerated Globalization (Megacities, Environmental Pollution, Large Scale Migrations, Addiction Disorders Epidemic etc.), Universal Health Coverage challenge, Health and Social Inequalities as well as the impacts of cutting edge medical technologies. In terms of methodological approaches used, we welcome submissions of a variety of Cost and Budget Impact analyses, Resource Utilization and Mathematical Modelling studies, Economic Evaluations alongside Clinical Trials on Efficiency, Health Education studies, Psychometrics and Quality of Life research, Health Technology Assessments and borderline Health Policy papers. We favor applications of applied macro- and microeconomics in health care that tend to be innovative and spark passionate discussion in a global professional arena.
