The South African Family Practice (SAFP) journal is the official journal of the South African Academy of Family Physicians (SAAFP) and is aimed at all SAAFP members (including family physicians, registrars, associate members, students), working within primary care (both private and public health sectors, as well as urban and rural practice settings) within South Africa and the wider Southern African region. SAFP is a peer-reviewed scientific journal, which strives to provide primary care teams, as well as researchers, with a broad range of scholarly work in the practice, training and learning of family medicine, primary care, primary health care, rural medicine, district health and other related fields. SAFP publishes original research, clinical reviews, and pertinent commentary that advance the knowledge base of these fields. The content of SAFP is designed to reflect and support further development of the broad basis of the family medicine and primary health care philosophy through original research and critical review of evidence in important clinical areas; as well as to provide practitioners with continuing professional development material. Other types of scholarly work that might be relevant to the practice, teaching and research of family medicine and primary care are welcome, e.g., evidence synthesis of various kinds (including systematic reviews and scoping reviews), book reviews, as well as submissions on innovative practices in family medicine/primary care. SAFP adheres to the international acceptable editorial standards, as published by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). The journal's editors are supported by an editorial board, which consists of South African members representing the nine academic training programmes as well as a representative from RuDASA (Rural Doctors Association of South Africa), and key members from the international family medicine and primary care community.
