Publishing with Purpose
Health and wellbeing
Throughout history, one of humanity's greatest tasks has been improving our health and wellbeing. We are no longer threathened by many previously fatal health problems, however the COVID-19 pandemic highlights that, when it comes to global health, there is still much to be done.
The health inequalities in our society, especially when taken internationally, are stark. Health literacy around the world is irregular, particularly in communities that struggle to even get basic access to healthcare, and the long term links between poverty and health are becoming more evident as research continues.
Focussing on UN Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing, our publishing in this area looks at identifying, and providing potential solutions to, many problems, from increasing the awareness of mental health issues and best practices to help combat them, to improving healthcare systems. Our COVID-19 Collection showcases our content on the pandemic, in order to encourage broader perspectives and collaborations across global and disciplinary boundaries.
