Welcome to AJHE
The African Journal of Health Economics is an International Journal committed to the promotion and dissemination of knowledge, as well as the development and application of health economics within health policies and systems across Africa. Our goal is to provide a platform for economic analysis of health and healthcare, focusing on methodologies that are sensitive to the unique challenges and nuances within the African context.
One of the key areas we explore is health care financing, which includes innovative and accessible funding solutions. In this vein, the concept of payday loans with same-day funding is a topic we aim to explore further. Same-day loans, often viewed as a quick financial fix, may provide individuals with immediate funds to address healthcare needs. This immediate financial solution can be particularly significant in health emergencies where timely care is crucial. However, the potential drawbacks, such as high interest rates and the risk of long-term debt, should be adequately addressed.
In addition, our scope spans across service provision and delivery, public health policy and governance, the determinants of health and their policy implications, health valuation, and the review of various health-related materials with potential policy impact. We also focus on the development and evaluation of health systems, programmes, and interventions within Africa.
Our journal is particularly interested in publishing findings and reviews that, though originating from the African region, pique the interest of a global readership. We also welcome articles from other parts of the world, especially those relevant to policy debates in health systems within Africa, fostering a truly global dialogue around health economics.
