The mission of the Health Problems of Civilization journal

Health Problems of Civilization (quarterly) is the continuation of Human and Health (ISSN 2082-7288), issued in the years 2010-2013. The journal is published exclusively in English; the abstracts, titles and keywords are also provided in Polish.
The mission of our journal is to popularize knowledge of people’s health problems in the light of the dynamic development of civilization, industrialization, urbanization and environmental changes that greatly affect modern life, often in a negative way. To explore this theme, the journal has been divided into three sections: Part I: Diseases and Problems Distinguished by the WHO and FAO; Part II: Physical Activity of Social and Professional Groups; Part III: Other. Accordingly, the articles cover topics such as biomedical aspects of health, modern diseases, physical activity or health-related behaviours. The journal also welcomes submissions on topics from the area of interest that is currently the focus of research in the scientific community such as Lyme disease, tuberculosis or obesity.

Journal’s title and its thematic scope

Epidemiological data indicate that civilization diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, overweight, obesity and cancer are significantly increasing. Over the past 20 years, more than 30 new highly infectious diseases have been identified worldwide. Consequently, research studies and national programs are being launched to educate the society how to avoid health risks and also to inform about early diagnosis and therapy. By covering the abovementioned topics, Health Problems of Civilization provides an opportunity to publish articles on current issues, including prophylaxis of diseases and health education as well as adverse health outcomes.

The articles in this journal are published open access (OA)
