Public health (PH) aims to protect and improve people’s health and their communities, starting from childhood. PH strategies are obtained through research on diseases, healthy lifestyle promotion, and injury prevention and by detecting, preventing and acting on infectious diseases. The geographic coverage of a population may be as small as a neighborhood or as big as an entire country or world region, as the recent COVID-19 pandemic showed. PH involves preventive medicine (PM), which may start even before birth, through mother health assurance, promotion and education.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an opportunity to share experiences of PH and PM for children as a useful tool for epidemiological practice and to encourage research toward improving future possibilities in the field of PH and PM. All types of research papers are welcome, such as original studies, review articles (especially systematic reviews and meta-analyses), epidemiological experiences from the COVID-19 pandemic and all state-of-the-art methods. Furthermore, the contribution of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and mobile technologies in all aspects of PH and PM for children are of special interest.
