The African Journal of Primary Health Care & Family Medicine (PHCFM), launched in 2008, is the official journal of WONCA (World Organization of Family Doctors) Africa Region. It provides a platform for scholarly exchange between family medicine and primary health care researchers and practitioners across Africa. It provides a contextual and holistic view of family medicine and primary health care as practised across the continent. The journal is indispensable to primary health care practitioners, family medicine specialists and academics with an interest in the African continent, and offers an engaging insight into the growth of these disciplines from a distinctly African perspective. PHCFM seeks to publish innovative research, reviews, country profiles, editorials and opinion pieces on all aspects of primary health care and family medicine in the African context. The research includes primary care, family practice, sexual health, oral health, emergency care, district health services, rural health care, health promotion, prevention of disease and disability, pain management and palliative care, community-orientated primary care, and the education and training of professionals and health workers in family medicine and primary health care.
