The Cancer Health Disparities (CHD) journal covers all aspects of disparities including social, cultural, behavioral, environmental, genetic, and epigenetic determinants contributing to differences in cancer incidence, prevalence, death, survivorship, and burden of cancer that exist among different populations around the world. The overall aim is to publish high-quality, high-impact, and innovative research articles in all areas related to cancer health disparities. 

CHD journal publishes case reports, multidisciplinary editorial, commentary, hypothesis, short and full-length reviews, full-length original clinical or basic science research articles, and short articles of immediate scientific or clinical significance. These include disparities at the metabolic, molecular, genetic, epigenetic, physiological, clinical, diagnostic, prevention, and therapeutic levels.
