Featured series: Trade and health
This special series includes articles that span a range of health and trade issues, examining empirically and theoretically how our new regimes of economic liberalization create some benefit, but portend new risks, for global public health. The series aims to create a singular venue for readers interested in how trade and investment treaties are reshaping health environments, and the politics and economics that, in turn, shape the treaties themselves.

Aims and scope
Boldly situating public health and wellbeing within the dynamic forces of global development, Globalization and Health is a pioneering, transdisciplinary journal dedicated to improving the health-related decisions of researchers, practitioners, governments, civil societies, and United Nations agencies.
Globalization and Health is an inclusive journal, encouraging authors to position their studies within contemporary global debates while promoting the innovation of new possibilities for public health, globally. We are dedicated to supporting the breadth of topics and issues underpinning this emerging and divergent area of research, and welcome papers exploring how globalization processes affect health through their impacts on health systems and the social, economic, commercial, and political determinants of health.
