About this Research Topic
Our global society is changing. As such, the field of public health education and promotion must constantly evolve and adapt alongside the ongoing changes in population growth and demographics, social and physical environments, and policy and other drivers of health-related costs. Further, the indicators of risk and markers of success have assumed new meaning as new societal needs/challenges have emerged and our initiatives have targeted new populations and health behaviors.
This Research Topic will primarily feature review/perspective articles that reflect on the status of public health across time and space. This collection of articles will broadly encompass a variety of health-related problems/issues across the socioecological spectrum that impact individuals and communities across the life-course. A multi-national team will write each article to: (1) capture the state of the problem/issue and its evolution over time; (2) reflect about the risk factors for and root causes of these problems/issues; and (3) offer possible solutions and recommendations for advancing the field.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
