BMC International Health and Human Rights is delighted to announce the launch of a new thematic series focused on the identification of concrete solutions to the non-communicable disease pandemic. We welcome articles on the scientific evidence concerning behavioral risk factors, the effectiveness of interventions, as well as on the economic, societal, behavioral or demographic dimensions of the debate. The series is open to researchers with a background in international relations, philosophy, law and human rights to reflect on the concrete options for law and policy. Authors should address the human rights dimensions of their topics in their respective contributions. The deadline for submissions is the 1st December 2018.
