Congratulations to Dr Nicaise Ndembi on his recent appointment as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Public Health in Africa!

The Journal of Public Health in Africa is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes high-quality original articles, reviews, comments and opinions on public health and related issues in Africa. In 2018, Africa CDC signed an agreement with the publisher, Page Press, to make the journal its official journal. While Page Press continues to take responsibility for publishing, Africa CDC manages the editorial oversight and peer review system of the journal. This initiative by Africa
CDC is to contribute to the increase in scientific knowledge and networking between Africa and the global community, ensure that public health research in Africa is adequately and accurately reported by Africans, and encourage more researchers from Africa to publish articles in the journal.
