Vol 11, No 1s (2016): HEALTHY FUTURES
Published: 2016-02-18 00:00:00
HEALTHY FUTURES (Health, environmental change and adaptive capacity: mapping, examining and anticipating future risks of water-related vector-borne diseases in eastern Africa) was a cooperative project funded under the European Commission (EC)’s Framework Programme 7 (FP7) Africa-2010 call. It ran for four years, terminating at the end of 2014, and aimed to build capacity in risk mapping for three water-related high-impact vector-borne diseases (malaria, Rift Valley fever, and schistosomiasis) in eastern Africa. Major outputs from the project are represented in the papers that make up this issue.

The Journal of Geospatial Health welcomes vHEALTH
The vHealth visual approach does not aspire to replace normal-length articles, but aims at facilitating communication to the wider set of stakeholders involved in research today, i.e. government offices, decision-makers, funding agencies, diseases programme managers as well as the very people who live and work in the endemic areas. To make visualization an integral part of the scientific communication, the journal welcomes the combination of short text and visual effects, e.g. a complementing video clip that presents objectives, concepts, methodologies and complex spatial associations in a manner that is entertaining and easily understandable, yet coherent and scientifically sound.
Each vHealth communication should consist of an abstract not exceeding 100 words (that will be indexed in PubMed and other databases), 3-5 keywords and a Background section (maximum 1,400 words) followed by a paragraph called "Outlook" (100 words) conferring the key message and a forward-looking statement. If needed, one figure may be included plus two boxes, one presenting the overall aim (50-100 words) and one describing any special software used (100-150 words). An Internet link to an instructive video clip forms the innovative part of the communication. The vHealth communications are limited to 12 references.
