An important decision made by the Editorial Board prior to launch was that the journal must be for the many and not just for a few who are engaged in clinical research. All of us, whether we are doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, dentists or in any other field of health care, must take a greater responsibility for managing and solving the many unique health issues and problems that we face in our regions. We must engage in research and voice our opinions by publishing them in this, our journal. To ensure wide readership, the journal encourages articles of general interest, as well as scientific articles, based on topics relevant to our region. With so many categories, JCMC is sure that that researcher will be able to make regular contributions to this journal. JCMC encourages the new generation of medical doctors and allied health professionals to generate and publish new research data in this journal and adopt critical thinking habits to address current health problems. This journal also encourages international research collaborations that result in joint publications of high international standards.
