Contextual issues of hazards and emergencies and their health consequences, in relation to other health sector priorities and national development priorities;
Conceptual and technical challenges in measuring disasters and their impact;

Importance of developing detailed technical guidelines and specific reporting systems for all aspects of health sector involvement in emergencies.
The editors are seeking manuscripts that articulate various theoretical frameworks and involve interdisciplinary topics in the field of crisis and emergency management.  If you have any unpublished article on hand and have the idea of making our journal a vehicle for your research interests, please revise it according to the author guideline (attached to this letter) and send electronic version of your paper to us.
