HEALTH IN THE MAGHREB, THE MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA
The Maghreb Review, Volume 34. 1, 2009 was devoted to this
topic. We intend to continue publishing original studies on this subject in
the future. Therefore, we welcome papers in English or French from specialists.
History has shown us that Mankind has always been the focus of the
studies that are based on different perspectives of various scientific disciplines.
Our attention in future issues is to draw attention to the degrees of success, and to
the problems encountered by health planners in the Maghreb, the Middle East and Africa,
and to produce ways of providing information for related research and health care in the
future. Governments should as far as possible involve local communities and not just
insurance companies, who see patients as customers.
We welcome original contributions on the following topics:
1. Religion: prohibitions of certain medical
practices in Islam and other faiths, in particular those such as human
tissue in organ transplantation and cloning: (Ḥadīth,
Fatwās, Qurʾān and Bible);
2. Sex: practices; Aids, policy and practice.
3. Economics: medicine: cost vs quality vs equity
4. Regulatory mechanisms, particularly in the
import of medicines.
5. Humanitarian issues.
6. Can the state cope with the growth of populations
which live longer, while the cost of treatment is getting more
and more expensive?
7. Earlier medical research by Muslims. The history
of Muslim, Christian and Judaic medicine.
8. Treatment of cancer in the Maghreb, the Middle
East and Africa.
9. The treatment of mental health in the Maghreb,
the Middle East and Africa.
10. Issues of medical ethics and medical jurisprudence.
11. We are also interested in the subject of Medical Anthropology.
