The Nigerian Journal of Health and Biomedical Sciences is a multidisciplinary and peer-reviewed journal. This journal was established to meet the challenges of health care delivery in the 21st century in Nigeria and other countries with similar setting in the ever-changing world of science and technology. The health care delivery apart from primary, secondary and tertiary health care systems has a lot of subjects/disciplines. There is a beauty in the diversity of these disciplines in Medicine but the primary goal of maintaining good health of an individual in a stable society, should not be lost to researchers. It is inconceivable that a man with typhoid intestinal perforation after surgical intervention in a tertiary health institution should be allowed to go back to the same old insanitary environment with polluted drinking water. Health education now becomes very relevant for the individual and the society where many sociological problems exist. The application of molecular biology and information technology is taking a center-stage in this century.
