PDM Call for Papers
Prehospital and Disaster Medicine (PDM) is issuing a Call for Papers on the Safety and Security of Humanitarian Responders during Public Health Emergencies.
Safety and security for humanitarian relief and health workers is a concern during deployment situations. However, in the formal literature there is little scientific or scholarly evaluation of the topic of humanitarian and health response safety and security. The PDM Editorial Board will devote a future issue to humanitarian and health worker safety and security to support the development of science in this area.
Please submit scientific and scholarly reports on this topic at - http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pdm. The deadline for submission is
1 March 2014.
Donations support WADEM to continue its work of advancing and disseminating the science of disaster and emergency health.
