About the Pan African Medical Journal

Some of the distinguishing characteristics of the Pan African Medical Journal:

The PAMJ is in electronic format only (no paper version), therefore, articles can be made available in a very short time. We are committed in maintaining high quality of scientific articles trough serious, accurate but fast peer-review process. We believe that scientific work done in Africa should be rapidly and freely made available to all researchers worldwide, while authors should retain the intellectual property of the articles they send to the journal.


To be the leading medical journal in Africa and one of the best in the world.


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 studies, reviews and comments on current health initiatives, project and work reports, personal experiences, educational articles and paper commenting on clinical, social, political, economical and all other factors affecting health. We are particularly interested in receiving articles and comments reflecting the point of view and experience of professionals working in Africa and related to the impact of currents public health initiatives on their daily routine.

We receive articles for publication from doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, students, policy makers, government bodies and others. Our target audience is health professionals, academic researchers, students, policy makers and anybody with interest in Africa health issues.

PAMJ was launched in early 2008 by Dr Raoul Kamadjeu and Dr Landry Tsague, with inputs and ideas from public health and medical professionals across the continent. A memorandum of understanding later signed with the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET) provided the journal with the necessary support needed to expand its operations. The first PAMJ editorial office was created within the premises of AFENET. A second editorial office was created in Cameroon in January 2014.
