African Case Studies for Public Health Volume 2


Journal Title:

Volume 30, Number Suppl 1


, Pages 17-17

In this supplement of the Pan African Medical Journal, we introduce the second series of African case studies for public health. The first series [1] was published in May 2017 and included a set of 11 case studies, all based on real public health events occurring in various African countries and all written by experienced Africa-based public health trainers and practitioners. The current supplement introduces 16 new case studies and expands the portfolio of public health functions, health issues and country-specific settings covered in the prior issue. Together, the two series published thus far address a major gap encountered in public health training programs in Africa – the lack of problem-based learning exercises that are locally relevant to African contexts.
