About us


The Malawi Medical Journal is a peer reviewed, open access, quarterly, general medical journal, published by the University of Malawi College of Medicine and the Medical Association of Malawi. The MMJ serves as a forum for the dissemination of findings of health-related research undertaken in Malawi and beyond to health workers. It incorporates original research studies, policy analysis, case reports, literature reviews, and occasional special features. It is published electronically on a quarterly basis. To better serve our main target audience in Malawi and sub-Saharan Africa, there are plans to revive a regular print version of the MMJ in the near future.
