Call for papers: Special Issue on Health Insurance and Health

15 Mar 2017

Deadline for submission is 31 July, 2017. Submission information is available here

The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) has commissioned a Special Issue on Health Insurance and Health. Health insurance is an important distal determinant of health status; health status itself may also exert an important influence over individuals’ insurance decisions, and correlated factors (such as risk aversion) may be correlated with both health outcomes and insurance choices.

This Special Issue focuses on the linkages between health insurance and health itself, but its remit is broad and extends to the management of risk in relation to a range of environmental and public health challenges. Submissions from a range of social science and health-related disciplines is encouraged (e.g., law, economics, public health epidemiology, environmental science, and so on).
