One of the publications from the College is the African Health Sciences Journal - an internationally refereed journal publishing original articles on research, clinical practice, public health policy planning, implementation and evaluation, in the health and related sciences relevant to Africa and the tropics. African Health Sciences was launched in August 2001, as a means to public high quality medical research from Uganda and other African countries. The quality of the journal was endorsed by acceptance on Medline. From 2005 African Health Sciences was published for times a year in March, June, September and December. The African Health Sciences has a twinning partnership with the British Medical Journal. Online accessibility available at:
