Health equity, and fostering of a global movement to achieve it, are the focus of the newly re-launched journal Society, Health and Vulnerability, previously titled Vulnerable Groups and Inclusion.
The journal is a Co-Action Publishing title and is led by Marianne Hedlund, a Professor in Health Science at Nord-Trondelag University College in Norway.
“While we are proud of the work published previously, we felt strongly about revising our original mission,” said Hedlund. Society, Health and Vulnerability aims to publish work that explores the complex relationship between social processes, health issues and rehabilitation in all their forms. As the title suggests, its scope has been broadened as well as refined.
Speaking to the strong societal need for such a journal, Hedlund said: “The ways in which society designs its social policies and rehabilitation efforts – as well as their generosity and inclusion, are critical to health; and this is especially true when it comes to vulnerable groups.”
“Society needs new solutions for tackling the social determinants that are so greatly impacting health – and this demands greater scientific analysis and the publication/sharing of research that explores the intersection of society, health and vulnerability.”
