Review series

Scientific and Policy Review Series

We aim to publish a series of scientific and policy review papers that synthesize the current evidence and identify the main gaps in knowledge and policy regarding public health issues in Iran. These manuscripts will be written by a group of authors including a SAPHIR fellows as a lead author and at least one senior and one junior scientist from Iran. Potential topics include: road traffic injuries, cardiovascular disease prevention, cancer, gastrointestinal disease, HIV/AIDS, health insurance, primary health care, nutrition, air pollution, generic drugs and health information systems. The main questions addressed in the reviews are: what is the current status of knowledge or health policy in the selected area? What are the major challenges in this area? What are the possible/practical ways to address these challenges in the future?
