Pediatric Rheumatology is calling for submissions to our collection on Context Specific Paediatric Rheumatology Care-Lessons from Africa. The landscape of paediatric rheumatology care across Africa is rapidly changing and expanding. Despite the health burden of acute conditions such as infections we strive to promote awareness and optimize healthcare for children with arthritis and its associated diseases to mitigate against the associated morbidity, disability and mortality. We hope to do this by showcasing how best to adopt best clinical practice despite the diverse socio-cultural background of countries in Africa. We invite interested authors to showcase their ideologies and research in promoting context specific paediatric rheumatology care in low middle income countries.
