In this supplement of the Pan African Medical Journal, we introduce the second series of African case studies for public health. The first series was published in May 2017 and included a set of 11 case studies, all based on real public health events occurring in various African countries and all written by experienced Africa-based public health trainers and practitioners. The current supplement introduces 16 new case studies and expands the portfolio of public health functions, health issues and country-specific settings covered in the prior issue. Together, the two series published thus far address a major gap encountered in public health training programs in Africa – the lack of problem-based learning exercises that are locally relevant to African contexts. To offset this gap, the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University – in close collaboration with the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET) – developed a training curriculum and implementation plan for the design and development of context-specific and culturally tailored public health case studies.
