Health & Place

  • Description
  • Details

Brings together international contributors from geography, sociology, social policy and public health.

Recent years have seen closer links evolving between medical geography, medical sociology, health policy, public health and epidemiology. The journal reflects these convergences, which emphasise differences in health and health care between places, the experience of health and care in specific places, the development of health care for places, and the methodologies and theories underpinning the study of these issues.

The journal offers readers comparative perspectives on the difference that place makes to the incidence of ill-health, the structuring of health-related behavior, the provision and use of health services, and the development of health policy.
