Call for Papers
During the last year, world governments have implemented a variety of health policies aimed to contain the COVID-19 pandemic and gain time until vaccines and specific antiviral treatments become available. Stringent lockdowns, travel bans, physical distancing, mask usage, massive decentralized testing, and the requirement of special hygiene measures for the general population are among these interventions. Even with these policies in play, health systems overload and the economic burden caused by the pandemic have brought reduced and unequal access to health care worldwide.
In support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 3, Good Health and Well-being, BMC Infectious Diseases is delighted to announce the release of Impact of COVID-19 Health Policies on Other Infectious Diseases. This collection aims to bring together original research articles and systematic reviews characterizing the benefits and detriments of COVID-19 pandemic health policies on prevention, transmission, diagnosis, and treatment of the whole spectrum of infectious diseases. Unsolicited narrative reviews will not be considered, as per the journal's policies.
