Editorial Board does not take any responsibility either for the content, nor the quality of the abstracts. We have to repeat that primary responsibility for the quality of the MSc theses belongs to the mentors, to the institutions they are representing, to the Vice-Dean of science, and to Reponsible person for MSc in Public Health. All of them should be more actively involved in the preparation of Master of Science theses in Public Health in order international standards to be achieved.
