    Special Issue on Primary Care and Community Health


    Primary care is the day-to-day healthcare given by a health care provider. Typically this provider acts as the first contact and principal point of continuing care for patients within a healthcare system, and coordinates other specialist care that the patient may need.


    Community health is a major field of study within the medical and clinical sciences which focuses on the maintenance, protection, and improvement of the health status of population groups and communities and tends to focus more on a defined geographical community.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on primary care and community health. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Public health & primary care
    • Primary care and family medicine

    • Disease prevention and health promotion
    • Health maintenance
    • Chronic disease management
    • Healthcare system and function
    • Socioeconomic effects
    • Risk factors
    • Alternative medicine

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.
