Section Editor: Kin On Kwok, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The Public Health section welcomes high-quality research that addresses critical issues in public health and contributes to advancing the field. We encourage submissions that focus on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to epidemiology, disease prevention and control and global health. We are particularly interested in studies that generate evidence-based insights, propose innovative interventions, and highlight interdisciplinary collaborations. We aim to publish research that has the potential to inform public health practice, disease control policies, and programs, ultimately improving population health outcomes. Authors are encouraged to submit rigorous studies employing robust methodologies, including quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and implementation science approaches. Additionally, we welcome systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and meta-syntheses that synthesize existing evidence and offer comprehensive perspectives on key public health issues. We look forward to receiving contributions from researchers and practitioners that contribute to the advancement of public health knowledge and practice.
