I am happy to announce the publication of issue 44 of AJFAND.

We have 10 excellent peer reviewed papers and a commentary on Tobacco. The information contained in the commentary can be of great benefit to those countries that face challenges in legislating against tobacco, or whose legislation has loopholes. Many countries in sub-Saharan Africa face these challenges.
Our next issue will focus on child nutrition. It has taken us months to assemble enough good quality articles for this issue. More papers on child, and maternal nutrition are invited. This can even be in form of a commentary or short communication.

We wish you happy reading.
