About the Journal
Health Research in Africa (HRA) is an open access, peer reviewed medical journal that is affiliated to Health Sciences and Disease. HRA values high quality research with impact on clinical care in order to improve human health in Africa. HRA covers all aspects of medicine, pharmacy, biomedical and health sciences, including public health and societal issues. Like HSD, it is an “online first” publication, which means that all the publications articles appear on the website before being included in the print journal. The papers are published in full on the website, with open access. Acceptance of manuscripts is based on the originality, the quality of the work and validity of the evidence, the clarity of presentation, and the relevance to our readership. Publications are expected to be concise, well organized and clearly written. Authors submit a manuscript with the understanding that the manuscript (or its essential substance) has not been published other than as an abstract in any language or format and is not currently submitted elsewhere for print or electronic publication. HRA is published by Afrimvoe Medical Services, Yaounde (Cameroon).
