Our Journal publishes original clinical research, papers on current issues of public health and health care, surveys and the latest advances in medical science.

We have updated the composition of the Editorial Board and regulations to include international requirements to best publishing practice.

The main principles of our Journal are quality, reliability and relevance of published materials. Our publications are carefully reviewed by experts for relevance, originality, theoretical and practical significance.

We are committed to the highest international standards and set priorities for cooperation with internationally recognized publishers to exchange experience and integration into the world of science. We share special interest in cooperation with such companies like «Elsevier», the world's largest publisher of scientific, technical, medical literature and innovative solutions in the field of science and education.

We are confident in our prospects and look forward to active cooperation with all who are interested in our activities.
