Aims and scope
International Journal of Health Geographics is fully dedicated to publishing novel, high quality and internationally significant manuscripts on all aspects of geospatial information systems and science applications in health and healthcare.
International Journal of Health Geographics covers a wide range of interdisciplinary geospatial topics in a health/healthcare context, from spatial data infrastructure and Web geospatial interoperability research, to research into real-time Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-enabled surveillance services, remote sensing applications, spatial epidemiology, spatio-temporal statistics, and even cyberspace mapping. The journal is thus of interest to audiences from many different fields.
World Health Day 2018
"Health for All" has been the WHO's guiding vision for more than seven decades. On this 70th anniversary year, beginning on April 7th - World Health Day - the WHO will maintain a high-profile focus on Universal Health Coverage via a series of events with global and local conversations about the many ways to achieve #HealthForAll. In support of World Health Day 2018, we've pulled together a collection of high-impact, influential articles and content from across BMC, relevant to this year's UHC theme.
