F1000Research: Rapid dissemination of research when it’s needed most
Rapid, transparent sharing of breakthrough research is essential in fast-paced fields of study like Public Health, where immediate access to robust science is crucial for informing public health responses in real time.
F1000Research provides fast and open publication alongside access to any underlying data, software code and resources, meaning your research can make an impact sooner and contribute to the ongoing improvement of health of people and communities.
Our innovative Open Access platform allows researchers to publish a wide range of research outputs - from traditional Research Articles to more unique formats, such as Study Protocols, Data Notes, and Method Articles. All articles on F1000Research are published openly and benefit from transparent and thorough post-publication peer review before being indexed in PubMed Central and Scopus, with expert reviews freely available for anyone to read.
We welcome research articles across all areas of Public Health, including:
• Health Education & Prevention
• Environmental Health
• Epidemiology & Biostatistics
• Occupational Health
• Diet & Nutrition
• Maternal & Child Health
• Non-communicable Diseases
• Communicable Diseases
Our unique publication model, combined with our progressive Open Data Policy, makes F1000Research the perfect home for transparent, reproducible Public Health research.

The consequence of COVID-19 on the global supply of medical products: Why Indian generics matter for the world?
Philippe J Guerin, Sauman Singh-Phulgenda, Nathalie Strub-Wourgaft
While the world is facing the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic, policymakers must plan for the direct response to the outbreak while minimising its collateral impact. Maintaining the supply chain of pharmaceutical products is not only paramount to cover the immediate medical response but will be fundamental to reducing disruption of the healthcare delivery system, which requires constant medicines, diagnostic tools and vaccines for smooth functioning. In this equation, the role of the Indian pharmaceutical industry will not only be critical to meet the domestic need of over 1.3 billion inhabitants but will equally be important for the rest of the world, including wealthy economies. Preventing a significant disruption of the Indian pharmaceutical supply chain during the outbreak and preparing it for large scale production for COVID-19 therapeutic or preventive medical products will not only help India but will assist the global response to this outbreak.

The importance of the global climate crisis requires linking physical activity promotion and climate action. This article provides a first overview of interconnections between physical activity promotion and climate action, potential synergies and discrepancies, aiming to stimulate further discussion about this topic. The analysis is based on the World Health Organization’s Global Action Plan on Physical Activity 2018-2030 (GAPPA). The GAPPA covers five perspectives that are of particular relevance with respect to potential links with climate policy: (1) Infrastructures supporting active transport, (2) green spaces and recreational/exercise facilities, (3) exercise programs, (4) mass communication campaigns and mass participation events and (5) training of professionals. Our analysis demonstrates a considerable alignment between strategies for physical activity promotion and efforts for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. However, in some of the areas, this alignment could still be improved. Additionally, more climate-conscious policies, research and surveillance need to be developed in the field of physical activity promotion.

Improving maternal health and reducing maternal mortality are part of the United Nations global Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. Ensuring every woman’s right to safe delivery is critical for reducing the maternal mortality rate. Our study aimed to identify determinants of safe delivery utilization among women in the eastern Indonesia.
