Description

This represents the third time our journal, the "International Quarterly of Community Health Education" has run a special issue. This one, "Sexual Health Protection, Culture, and Community: Contributions of Anthropology to Community Health Education", represents perhaps the most comprehensive treatment of a subject in a single issue. It also is the longest (155 pp.) and has more articles (nine) than any one of our sixty-six issues to date!
