WAME STATEMENT

The International Journal of Maternal and Child Health and AIDS (IJMA) is an open-access peer-reviewed journal committed to publishing high quality articles in the fields of maternal and child health and  the burden and impact of HIV/AIDS on the maternal and child health population. 

The journal publishes a variety of papers that seek to investigate how the social determinants of health and communicable and non-communicable diseases impact the maternal and child health (MCH) population at the local, national, and global levels. 

The journal publishes papers that can be applied to global maternal and child health practices, programs, and policies, especially those that contribute to local and international efforts to improve the health of maternal and child health populations and those affected and impacted by HIV/AIDS.
