History

 

The Evandro Chagas Institute (IEC), a decentralized unit of the Brazilian National Secretariat of Surveillance in Health (SVS) - Ministry of Health (MS), is a research institution located in the Amazon specialized in the areas of Biomedicine, Public Health and Environment, and has produced scientific knowledge for more than 70 years.

The project of editing its own scientific journal was launched in 2007, and showed the Institute’s interest in collaborating with the process of scientific development of the Amazon. The region already had great coverage in the areas of Anthropology, Earth and Agrarian Sciences, Veterinary Medicine, Education, Engineering, Management of Government Institutions, Accounting, Economy, Geography and Medical Sciences. Nevertheless, there was a lack of studies in the areas of Biomedicine, Public Health and Environment, which are exactly the subjects IEC is relevant for.

Therefore, the creation of an official publication to disseminate researches and investigations in the areas of Biomedicine, Environment, Public Health and Medical Anthropology in the Pan-Amazonian region has become really necessary. Its coverage, however, should include the intellectual production of other institutions from all parts of Brazil and even international research institutes.

A journal credited by a worldwide known institution, such as IEC, contributes to the dissemination of the scientific research produced emphasizing regional subjects, although its scope includes accepting publications from other regions and countries. This way, it can broadcast works involving entomological, epidemiological, ecological, anthropological and socioeconomic studies, as well as the production of immunobiologicals, laboratorial diagnoses and other researches related to the environment and people's health.
