Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a Special Issue  entitled "Sustainable Innovations in Health Economics and Health Management: Opportunities and Challenges”, to be published in the journal Sustainability. This Special Issue seeks theoretical and empirical papers that explore innovative strategies and approaches to addressing urgent concerns in health economics and health management while ensuring sustainability.

Submissions may investigate policy issues related to the role of various stakeholders, including public and private (both for-profit and non-profit) entities, in driving sustainable innovations in healthcare. Papers may also analyze how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the dynamics and interactions among these stakeholders and the implications for sustainable health management practices.

We encourage authors to submit comparative studies and articles from diverse geographical contexts, including low- and middle-income countries, to provide a comprehensive understanding of the global landscape of sustainable innovations in health economics and management.

Potential topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Sustainable financing models for healthcare systems
  2. Innovative strategies for cost containment and efficiency in healthcare delivery
  3. The role of technology in promoting sustainable health management practices
  4. Equity and accessibility in healthcare innovations
  5. Sustainable workforce development and capacity building in healthcare
  6. Collaborative approaches to healthcare innovation involving public–private partnerships
  7. The impact of sustainable health innovations on patient outcomes and quality of care
  8. Sustainable supply chain management in healthcare
  9. Sustainable waste management practices in healthcare facilities
  10. The role of health economics in promoting sustainable healthcare policies
  11. Sustainable innovations in mental health and well-being
  12. Sustainable approaches to addressing the social determinants of health
  13. The impact of climate change on health and the role of sustainable health innovations in mitigation and adaptation strategies

We invite authors from diverse disciplines, including health economics, health management, public health, sustainability science, and related fields, to contribute to this Special Issue. Both conceptual and empirical papers using qualitative, quantitative, or mixed-method approaches are welcome.
