Since the inaugural issue of HCS in November 2011, the readership and attention received has grown significantly. With this in mind, the third issue will mark an important moment in the journal’s one year history, as well as in the visibility of health and policy research it has facilitated. HCS is more than a periodical; it is a platform giving visibility and exposure to research, development strategy and important debate in health and culture where protagonists showcase critical work from the social and medical sciences. HCS is geared towards an inter-disciplinary approach to issues of health, culture and society inviting contributions from a diversity of fields. HCS encourages both original and funded research into regional developments which can impact upon the global image of health, culture and society. HCS will reflect the very real developments in ideas that shape our modern understandings of health, and how cultural and social factors are important to its paradigm. The third issue of HCS will be released 17th November 2012. The theme will be Health and Identity. The international editorial committee invites contributions from researchers, workers and professionals who can relate the social urgencies and efforts of the realities they face as well as the changes they seek to implement.
