About Journal

 This is the official journal of the Egyptian Public Health Association that represents all personnel working in public health in Egypt. It is one of the few Egyptian journals indexed in PubMed since 1926. The journal has high visibility, wide indexing and diverse readership. The published research focuses on Egyptian strategic health priorities and targets public health decision makers and researchers in the field of public health. The journal also welcomes research from regional and international faculty and scholars. Information derived from studies addressing major public health problems and emerging issues serves as baseline epidemiological data for planning relevant preventive and control measures. We aim at Bridging the gap between public health research and practice.
