Introducing the Journal of Interventional Epidemiology and Public Health (JIEPH).


The Journal of Interventional Epidemiology and Public Health (JIEPH) is an open access international, peer reviewed scientific journal published by the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET). JIEPH's Vision is to be a veritable platform which provides culturally and technically specific evidence that drives public health and field epidemiology practice and policy.
JIEPH's Mission is to build capacity for public health evidence generation and context specific dissemination from Africa to the rest of the world.

JIEPH publishes original scientific papers, reviews, and short reports in all areas of public health with special interest in interventional field epidemiology. 

JIEPH welcomes review articles and meta-analyses, novel hypotheses and approaches in addition to discussion of research theory, public health policy and practice. 

JIEPH also publishes conference and workshop proceedings, and special supplements on public health related issues and events.
