We are delighted to announce the launch of Design For Health, the new journal for design and creative practice in Health and Wellbeing.

The Journal is published twice a year by world-leading academic and professional publisher Taylor & Francis Online.

Design for Health is an international refereed journal covering all aspects of design in the context of health and wellbeing. The journal provides a forum for design and health scholars, design professionals, health-care practitioners, educators, and managers worldwide.

Design for Health aims to publish thought-provoking work based on rigorous research and invites high quality, original submissions that make a contribution to knowledge and practice in the context of the design of health products, services, and interventions that promote dignity and enhance quality of life.

The Editors now welcome submissions for content for the first volume of the journal to be published in 2017.
