Aim & Scope

Culture, Health & Sexuality provides a high quality environment in which to publish internationally relevant, cutting edge research on culture, health and sexuality.

Papers come from a wide range of disciplines – including anthropology, cultural studies, development studies, education, law and human rights, policy studies, psychology, public health, sexual and reproductive health, and sociology. Cross-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary contributions are welcome.

This leading journal has a strong international focus, as reflected in the composition of the editorial board, which includes members from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas.

The key issues focused upon include:

• Culture, sexuality and health, health systems and beliefs, social structures and divisions, and the implications for these for sexual health and wellbeing;

• Sexual and reproductive health – of individuals, communities and populations, including STIs and HIV and sexual/reproductive health problems, but also the positive dimensions of sexual health, including pleasure, reciprocity and sexual fulfilment;

• Sexual and gender inequality and health, including the health and well-being of sexual and gender minorities, sexual and reproductive health and rights, and new forms of sexual expression and desire; and

• Policy and practice dimensions of research on sexuality, culture and health; sexual and gender inequality and health; and sexual and gender violence.

All research papers in this journal, including those in special issues, special sections or supplements, have undergone rigorous peer review based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by at least two independent referees.
