The goal of the Cancer Health Disparities (CHD), a journal of the Company of Scientists, is to cover all aspects of disparities including social, cultural, behavioural, environmental, genetic and epigenetic determinants contributing to differences in cancer incidence, prevalence, death, survivorship, and burden of cancer that exist among different population 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.
