The Journal of Urban Health

Urban cultures in America and around the world are growing, and with this growth comes a unique set of health issues. Traditional public health and medical practices and methods must be adapted to respond to the urban population. The Journal of Urban Health reflects the focus of its parent organization, The New York Academy of Medicine, on the emerging field of urban health and epidemiology.

Important changes in patterns of disease and disability have been noted in urban populations, encouraging health professionals to expand their vision to include social and economic determinants of health. For example, the parallel epidemics of substance abuse, teenage pregnancy, HIV, tuberculosis, and violence underscore the significance of such key factors as poverty, family disintegration, racial bias, and urban crowding in shaping the profile of urban morbidities.

The Journal of Urban Health addresses these health issues from both clinical and policy perspectives, filling a neglected niche in medical and health literature.

Now published by Springer, the Journal publishes six issues per year, thus ensuring timely reportage of important clinical developments and policy issues. In addition to original articles, the Journal publishes urban health data, book reviews, selected reports and proceedings from Academy symposia, and classic papers that are important to the knowledge base of the field.
