Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Injuries can lead to long-term functional impairment, reduced health-related quality of life, catastrophic health expenditure, and have both social and economic impact. Our understanding of global injury mortality has grown over the past two decades. More substantial but less well-documented are non-fatal injuries which lead to hospitalization, disability, and other long-term consequences in function and the quality of life. 

Furthermore, trauma and injury often contribute to catastrophic health expenditure. In recent years, many countries have moved toward universal health coverage; however, health financial protection schemes and compensation systems need to be evaluated in order to truly understand the economic impact of injuries. 

In light of these considerations, this Special Issue aims to publish original articles and comprehensive reviews on the relationship between social and environmental determinants of injury and social, health and economic impacts.
