Call for Papers: Global Cardiovascular Health Disparities Special Issue
Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes welcomes the submission of manuscripts focusing on the topic of global cardiovascular health disparities, defined as differences in the burden of disease and access to healthcare across vulnerable population groups. All submissions will receive expedited consideration for publication in a special focus issue, which will publish in the fall.
We are looking for Perspectives, Original Research, Methods, and Data Visualizations articles. We are eager for content that includes both within country and across country comparisons in healthcare disparities (access to or availability of facilities and services) and health outcomes disparities (variation in rates of disease occurrence and disabilities) in settings outside of North America. We are interested in racial/ethnic, socioeconomic and/or geographically defined population groups. Manuscripts may describe social determinants or disparities in cardiovascular health in lower and middle-income countries or indigenous populations in high-income countries. Lastly, manuscripts that describe interventions aimed at reducing disparities will be of the highest interest.
Deadline for Submission: Friday, June 30, 2017
