The Journal of Health Informatics in Africa solicits scientific papers focusing on the use of information and ICTs in the healthcare sector in the broad sense (including self-help, health promotion, education and training of health providers, research, etc.) in Africa.

This second issue of volume 3 (2015) of JHIA is an open-call issue containing three full papers subjected to double-blind peer review. All three papers report on scientific research of interest to and applicable in Africa.

The topics dealt with in the papers are varied yet common in striving to build on and improve capacity in resource constrained settings, whether for health care practitioners, healthcare institutions or within communities. The matters addressed in these papers remain topical for health informatics in Africa. Submissions to JHIA can be in English or French. The first of the papers in this issue is published in French with the second and third papers published in English.

This issue then concludes volume 3 of JHIA, based on the current publication frequency of two issues within a volume (calendar year). Nicky Mostert-Phipps will be the editor-in-charge for volume 4 (2016) issue 1.

With thanks to the editorial team.
