Health SA Gesondheid is an accredited interdisciplinary research journal that is published four times a year by AOSIS OpenJournals. This journal aims to contribute to the development of science. We do this through interchange and cooperation between health professions, and we try to develop a relevant, effective health service delivery system in southern Africa through research. The journal also aims to facilitate the gathering and critical testing of insights and viewpoints on knowledge from different disciplines involved in health service delivery.

This journal can be viewed in its entirety via its publisher AOSIS OpenJournals homepage here: http://openjournals.net/ or at the journal's own homepage here: http://www.openjournals.net/index.php/journals/browse-by-title
