Scope & Topics

“Using PLOS ONE’s interdisciplinary focus, we will look at how different disciplines and approaches can contribute to our understanding of health inequity and disparities. With this Call for Papers, we will showcase a collection of works highlighting the challenges, ideas and interventions in the long road to achieve health equity for all.”

— Collection Guest Editors

This Collection will aim to inform local, national and international initiatives to reduce and eliminate health disparities. An interdisciplinary approach combining all relevant disciplines in the field of public health will be used to:

  1. Examine the relative health experiences and outcomes for populations subject to health or healthcare disparities, and the socioeconomic patterning of health worldwide
  2. Evaluate risk factors and etiologies related to observed health inequalities/disparities, especially in regard to noncommunicable diseases
  3. Study new or existing interventions, particularly for non-infectious diseases, to improve health equity
