Scope of the journal
Our scope is fairly narrow. Any articles that will contribute towards improving healthcare in our region and beyond will be welcome especially those which contain original ideas which are especially relevant to us. The articles will have to meet one or all three of three criteria - they must inform, educate and entertain.
Our broad aim is to publish articles of the highest level to promote evidence based medicine.
We will cover a wide range of subjects including medical education, basic health sciences, public health, clinical practice of broad and super specialties, hospital administration, history of medicine, surgery and medical schools and any others related to improving healthcare for our own country and for the world.
