While participating in the Pan African Medical Doctors and Healthcare Conference 21-22 May 2014 in Addis Ababa, it came to my attention there is a journal published quarterly concerning emergency medicine and care that is available on-line free of charge. Anyone interested in emergency health care in Africa should check out the African Journal of Emergency Medicine.
It is published by the African Federation for Emergency Medicine (AFEM) founded in 2009 and representing a broad coalition of national societies, organizations, and individuals from more than 25 countries. AFEM provides data to inform policy-makers and provides open access emergency care training curricula for nurses, mid-level providers, and specialists. The journal has the objective of supporting emergency care across Africa and publishes original research, reviews, case reports, reports of scientific investigations, and commentary on topics of importance to emergency care in Africa.
