The 36th Medic Africa Exhibition

Welcome to the Africa Health web site, the home of practical and relevant information for the busy health professional.

For over 30 years Africa Health has been a leading source of clinical and managerial information for health professionals from across Africa. Incorporating the old Medicine Digest title in 2002 for a few years it appeared as a part of Mera (Medical Education Resource Africa) journal which also incorporated the excellent African Health Sciences journal as well as our sister journals, the African Journal of Diabetes Medicine, and the African Journal of Respiratory Medicine.

Africa Health was relaunched as a stand alone title in September 2009, and this development of a bespoke web site has followed closely behind.

Issues surrounding the continuing professional development needs of Africa's health workforce are central to Africa Health journal. The human resources for health crisis is not going to be resolved until the health workforce is properly trained, remunerated and motivated. Health system strengthening in Africa is not going to be achieved without the right people on the ground to make it happen, be they physicians, nurses, community health workers, para health professionals or managers.

The site is work in progress at the moment, but we intend that in due time it will not only provide free on line access to current and past editions of Africa Health, but also act as a portal to help you quickly find quality and reliable resources on matters of interest to you elsewhere on the world wide web.

Much is planned. We just have to find the time - and the funds - to achieve it!
