Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Public health is an organized social effort that is mainly pursued through the common activities of public institutions, which aim to improve, promote, protect, and restore population health. Improving health for all requires the expansion of public health interventions to include obstetrics and gynecology. Women’s health problems change throughout their lives; initially, they concern reproduction, pregnancy, and contraception, while in later life, menopause and cancerous diseases become the focus. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted some new risks for women’s health. A correct diagnosis of COVID-19 is a precondition for an effective intervention in issues concerning the health both women and foetuses. Public health risk assessments are concerned with health hazards, for example, those resulting from environmental causes (environment of life, work, etc.), health behaviours (eating habits, addictions, and physical activity), or other causes, including those that are congenital. This Special Issue will address the problems of public health in relation to obstetrics and gynaecology. I invite you to contribute a paper for publication in our upcoming Special Issue, Obstetrics and Gynecology in Public Health.

Prof. Dr. Artur Wdowiak
Guest Editor
