The 54th edition of the ZMA Annual General Meeting will be held on 27th and 28th July 2018 at David Livingstone Royal Safari Lodge. The theme for this year is “Health for all: Harnessing the opportunities of the Social Health Insurance”.

The Scientific Conference will be open to various disciplines and affiliate associations to present practice-changing and what’s new in medical research. This will give chance to a variety of topics in different specialities to be presented.

In order for us to give maximal time to presenters, we have set aside a separate session for scientific papers to be presented. Papers that will presented at the Conference will be published in the special edition of the Medical Journal of Zambia if they have not been presented elsewhere.

Therefore, this call is for the expression of interest to be part of the scientific committee that will select papers/abstracts.

Applicants should be researchers with experience in peer reviewing of academic papers. Kindly note that this is open to all ZMA members including those based in the diaspora.

The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, 13th April, 2018.
