Jacqueline Ramke, Nyawira Mwangi, Jennifer Evans issue an invitation for a special issue on Equity and Eye Health…
We would like to invite you or your collaborators to submit a paper to a special issue we are organising in the “International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health”, an open access peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health.
The theme of our special issue is Leaving no one behind: Equity and Eye Health and the submission deadline is 31 August 2019.
In this Special Issue, we will consider submissions on any aspect of equity and eye health in low- and middle-income settings, or interventions targeted towards disadvantaged groups in any setting. Our understanding of the problem of inequalities in eye health is growing, but there is very little evidence on solutions to eliminate these inequalities. Therefore, we are particularly interested in solution-based research on strategies to address inequalities, which can include health systems, implementation or operational research, experimental or quasi-experimental studies, and systematic reviews. We also welcome submissions that report novel methods of measuring or conceptualising eye-health inequality.
More information on the special issue and instructions for submission can be found here: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph/special_issues/equity_eye_health
If you have any questions, please get in touch with one of us (emails at the link above). We look forward to reading your submissions and assembling an interesting and impactful Special Issue.
