In memoriam: Professor Malcolm Molyneux (1943-2021)

Adamson S. Muula,

Editor-in-Chief, Malawi Medical Journal and Head of Public Health, The Kamuzu University of Health Sciences (KUHeS), Blantyre, Malawi

We, at the Malawi Medical Journal ( were saddened by the demise of Professor Malcolm Molyneux, former Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of our journal on 17th November 2021. Malcolm passed away in the UK
where he had been since 2015 after almost three decades of service to Malawi and our journal. The Malawi Medical
Journal started off as the Medical Quarterly for which Prof Molyneux was its EIC from 1980 to 1984. After some
break at the Journal, Malcolm returned to head the journal again before handing over to Dr Chiwoza Bandawe, who himself was succeeded by Dr Lucinda Manda-Taylor before I took over in 2019. We share history with the Tropical Doctor journal, as Prof Molyneux also served as its IEC for some period.
