Aims & Scope

Global Health Economics and Sustainability (GHES) is an interdisciplinary forum intended to tackle challenges of long-term sustainability of health care provision and financing. Leading actors to participate in this ongoing debate are governmental authorities, multilateral agencies such as the United Nations (UN), the World Trade Organization (WTO), World Health Organization (WHO), G20, the BRICS, Belt and Road Initiative, ASEAN, academia, pharmaceutical and medical device industry, hospital, clinical physicians and patients associations. It is an open-access peer reviewed outlet whose primary goal is to cover unmet needs of the rapidly developing Global South’s Low-and-Middle-Income nations and wealthy OECD nations of the post industrial Global North. Contemporary landscape worldwide is dominated with mega scale urbanization, 4.0 industrial revolution, environmental pollution, population aging, and transformation of labour markets. Such changes inevitably lead to declining fertility, sedentary life style, consumption of processed foods and blossoming of expensive chronic noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). Under such circumstances, modern day welfare social and health insurance systems become increasingly resource constrained. Century long legacy of interdisciplinary health sciences, led by health economics, continues to shape an array of adaptive health policies and strategic responses to combat a discrepancy between the rising demand for technologically advanced and accessible medical care and societal willingness to pay threshold for such commodity. Aligned with aforementioned challenges faced by modern day health systems worldwide, GHES will welcome contributions in a variety of core areas such as: 

  • Health Economics
