The African Journal of Health Sciences has been in circulation since 1994. Initially it was published Bi-Annually. Due to increased demand, it went quarterly in 2008 and is now published Bi-Monthly since 2015. The demand still remains very high and we intend to go Monthly by the end of 2020. The Journal is peer reviewed and quality of Manuscripts in the publication remains high.



The African Journal of Health Sciences provides a forum for communication of research results and policy issues in health sciences and related disciplines. The journal is dedicated to serving, primarily, scientists in Africa who desire to publish their research findings and those outside the content wishing to contribute to global health. The Editorial Board will therefore, give priority to articles that make significant contribution to the development and promotion of health in Africa.

Frequency of Publication: Bi-Monthly.

Each issue will essentially contain the following sections, with variants where necessary:


  1. A short editorial statement on policy issues not more than two thousand words, placed not necessarily on the first page.

  2. A short review, not more than five thousand words, titled ‘Perspective’ on a current topic in the health sciences.

  3. One or two review articles by invitation or on application.

  4. Peer reviewed articles by invitation or an application.

  5.  Letters to the editor
