Public Health Panorama: Arts & Health in the European Region

Call for papers deadline 21st October 2019

Public Health Panorama is calling for the submission of papers for a special issue on "Arts and Health in the European Region", which will be published in March 2020.

This issue of Public Health Panorama is connected to the WHO Regional Office for Europe’s cultural contexts of health and well-being (CCH) project, which aims to systematically explore the ways in which culture affects health, including looking into practical ways that arts and culture can be used to improve health.

The arts and health issue of Panorama will aim to showcase:

  • leading examples of arts in health research and clinical practice programmes, interventions, and evaluations;

  • case studies where health policy-makers have implemented arts in health policies;

  • examples of good-practice in arts and health at a country, regional or local level.

For further details and submission, visit World Health Organisation Europe.
