HEALTH IN THE MAGHREB, THE MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA

The Maghreb Review, Volume 34. 1, 2009 was devoted to this topic. We intend to continue publishing original studies on this subject in the future. Therefore, we welcome papers in English or French from specialists.


History has shown us that Mankind has always been the focus of the studies that are based on different perspectives of various scientific disciplines. Our attention in future issues is to draw attention to the degrees of success, and to the problems encountered by health planners in the Maghreb, the Middle East and Africa, and to produce ways of providing information for related research and health care in the future. Governments should as far as possible involve local communities and not just insurance companies, who see patients as customers.

We welcome original contributions on the following topics:

1. Religion: prohibitions of certain medical practices in Islam and other faiths, in particular those such as human tissue in organ transplantation and cloning: (Ḥadīth, Fatwās, Qurʾān and Bible);

2. Sex: practices; Aids, policy and practice.

3. Economics: medicine: cost vs quality vs equity and safety.

4. Regulatory mechanisms, particularly in the import of medicines.

5. Humanitarian and Philanthropic contributions: We welcome original articles analysing the rule of philanthropic organisations, particularly in Africa and other countries where the health systems have very limited national resources to deal with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, recent swine flu and other tropical diseases. This research should explain how such philanthropic resources have changed people’s lives and whether their involvement has any political and financial influence on local or national politics.

6. Can the state cope with the growth of populations which live longer, while the cost of treatment is getting more and more expensive?

7. Earlier medical research by Muslims. The history of Muslim, Christian and Judaic medicine.

8. Treatment of cancer in the Maghreb, the Middle East and Africa.

9. The treatment of mental health in the Maghreb, the Middle East and Africa.

10. Issues of medical ethics and medical jurisprudence.

11. We are also interested in the subject of Medical Anthropology.

Our Conditions of Publication are available here on our website.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS 30 NOVEMBER 2014.

MANUSCRIPTS IN ENGLISH OR IN FRENCH.
