Journal of Health Science

Journal of Health Sciences is a peer-reviewed journal that disseminates information, scholarship and experience in education, practice and investigation between medicine, nursing and all the sciences involved in health care. Aim of journal is to supply scientists of health with resources in order to provide the scientific knowledge, intellection and research and especially to improve health status and qualification of care for individuals, families and communities.
