World Health Day 2018
"Health for All" has been the WHO's guiding vision for more than seven decades. On this 70th anniversary year, beginning on April 7th - World Health Day - the WHO will maintain a high-profile focus on Universal Health Coverage via a series of events with global and local conversations about the many ways to achieve #HealthForAll. In support of World Health Day 2018, we've pulled together a collection of high-impact, influential articles and content from across BMC, relevant to this year's UHC theme.
Aims and scope
Conflict and Health brings together essential research on the intertwined relationship between health and conflict.
Millions of people around the world are caught between the vicious spiral of violent conflict and poor health. The journal focuses on the intricate relationship between conflict and health, and how health interventions in war zones may contribute to peace.
