Pan African Medical Journal

Pan African Medical Journal is intended exclusively for professionals in the medical, paramedical and public health and other health sectors.

Pan African Medical Journal (PAMJ)

We believe that scientific work done in Africa should be rapidly and freely made available to all researchers worldwide. 



To create, stimulate and perpetuate a culture of information sharing and publishing amongst researchers and other health actors of the African health scene in ways that will contribute to availability of health information, better understanding of Africa specificities and overall, to improve health outcomes of the people on the continent. 



We publish original scientific research on clinical, public health, social, political, economic and all other factors affecting the health of populations in Africa.
