Suicide is a serious public health problem worldwide, being one of the leading causes of death in young people between 15 and 34 years and representing a high human and economic cost. Each year almost one million people lose their lives despite it being preventable. Knowing the risk factors, social determinants, epidemiology and prevention are essential when generating policies on this subject.

The Pan American Journal of Public Health makes available the articles published on suicide.
