I am delighted that the abstracts accepted for presentation at the International Collaboration Conference on Population Health and Wellbeing Research 2022 are being published in this special issue of the IJPDS.

Over 200 delegates from 20 countries participated in this prestigious two-day international Conference.

The Conference provided the opportunity to share information, develop collaborations and facilitate future cross-nation research. The exciting and dynamic programme focused on population health with dedicated streams ranging from maternal and child health to schools and education, natural experiment evaluation, healthy ageing, chronic conditions and morbidity.

We anticipate that the presentations will be of great interest – strengthening idea generation, knowledge sharing and international collaborations. We very much hope you will enjoy this special issue.
