Call for Papers for the Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved (JHCPU)
Deadline: December 12, 2008
JHCPU issues a Call for Papers for a supplemental issue to be published in November 2009, sponsored by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation and co-edited by Drs. Camara Jones (CDC) and Gillian Barclay (PAHO/WHO). The supplement will focus on global perspectives on the social determinants of health and equity, with an emphasis on children’s health and well-being. They seek papers that do one or more of the following: 1) Provide an overview of social determinants of children’s health and equity, with an emphasis on underserved populations; 2) Report on evidence-based interventions which address the social determinants of health and equity to improve health outcomes among children, especially in the Americas including Latin America and the Caribbean, and in sub-Saharan Africa; 3) Discuss existing and proposed trans-sectoral policy to address the health needs of children in one or more of these geographic areas; 4) Discuss innovative trans-sectoral leadership and health workforce models that incorporate the social determinants of health and equity to address the health needs of children in one or more of these geographic areas; 5) Examine the interface of social and economic structures, including labor, finance, and health, as it bears on children in these populations. For initial consideration, please submit an abstract no longer than 300 words by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 12, 2008.
