E-collection 'Theme Issue 2018: Mass Gathering Preparedness and Public Health Recommendations (Guest Editor: Y. Khader)'

Mass Gatherings are defined as an aggregation of people ranging from as few as 1,000 individuals to upwards of 25,000 in a specific location for a designated period of time. Given the complex challenges of mass gatherings, the public authorities and supporting organizations need to be ready to accommodate masses throughout the event including pre-event preparation and post-event activities. For this special issue, guest editors Prof. Yousef Khader, Mark Smolinski, Adam Crawley, and Marlo Libel are seeking research and review articles on patterns and burden of diseases during mass gathering, emergencies during mass gathering, strengths and weakness of surveillance during mass gatherings, and quality and assessment of health care services for mass gatherings.
