Call for Submissions

We invite anyone interested in the geographies of health and health care to submit an abstract for a session where the focus will be on the geographies of health. Quantitative, qualitative, GIS and systematic review papers are welcome that deal with any aspect of health (or disease) from any place in the world at any geographical scale from the local to the international. The analysis can be based on a specific vulnerable population or any age, gender or population group. Our goal is to provide a forum for the presentation of papers and provide positive feedback to move health geography research forward.
