Throughout the year, our Editors may issue a Call for Papers for a special collection of articles for a themed issue or themed section of the journal. Below you’ll find links to the active Call for Papers for Value in Health Regional Issues.

Call for Papers:

Universal Health Coverage: Equity and Access to Health

According to the World Health Organization, at least half of the world’s population still does not have full coverage of essential health services. To address the inequities in access and affordability of healthcare, all United Nations Member States have a common goal of achieving universal health coverage by the year 2030.

The goal of universal health coverage is to ensure that all people obtain the health services they need without suffering financial hardship in order to pay for them. Recognizing that many countries have already taken steps to providing universal health coverage, the Editors are issuing a Call for Papers that explore the innovative ways governments and health systems are addressing the social, economic, and policy issues that will reduce inequities and improve the availability, quality, and affordability of healthcare in these regions.

The Editors invite economic evaluations, health policy analyses, patient-reported outcomes research, and methodological submissions that provide data and insights that healthcare decision makers can use to inform priorities for legislation, regulation, and reimbursement for health services in the region.

Submissions received before January 1, 2020 will have the best chance of being published in Value in Health Regional Issues in 2020. Final decisions regarding ultimate acceptance rest solely with the Editors.

Authors should submit manuscripts through the journal’s online submission system and be sure to indicate in the cover letter that the paper is to be considered for the Universal Health Coverage themed section.
