The African Journal of Midwifery and Women's Health (AJM) is a new quarterly peer-reviewed and evidence based journal for midwives and nurses. It is aimed at those who wish to keep up-to-date with developments in Africa, in matters relating to midwifery and women's health.

AJM is the first African journal with a specific focus on maternity matters, providing African midwives and nurses with a new voice. It strives to offer a forum for African authors, as well as interested writers from outside the continent.

AJM recognises the complexity of midwifery and women's health in Africa and aims to function as a platform for topical debates on clinical and professional issues. Research and education are integral to the journal, encouraging advanced skills, knowledge transfer and academic discussions.

If you wish to remain informed on the latest developments in African midwifery and women's health, as well as further your professional development, then the AJM is for you. Subscribe to the journal securely through this website.
