Health geography is a multi-disciplinary sub-discipline that focuses broadly on health and well-being, by adopting a framework of health that emphasizes its biological, economic, political, social, and cultural contexts and influences. Health geographers have drawn on a large range of theoretical perspectives, conceptual frameworks, and methodological approaches to consider a multitude of local, national, and global health challenges. Indeed, health geography is also proving increasingly influential across other social sciences and health disciplines and in the development of local, national, and global environmental health and public health policies. Themes within health geography are apparent in multiple areas of environmental health and public health research. The emphasis lies in understanding and reducing or mitigating health risks associated with physical, mental, societal, environmental, and behavioral factors. This Special Issue focuses on health geography’s contribution to environmental health research. We invite recent research on topics that reflect this scope, including (but not limited to) the following themes:
- Health inequalities;
- Health effects of globalization;
- Urbanization change and health;
- Disease surveillance;
- Modelling and mapping;
- Therapeutic and healthy landscapes;
- Health service use;
- Disease etiology;
- Determinants of health.
