The Journal of Preventive Medicine Vietnamese edition, previously titled the Journal of Hygiene and Disease Control, has been publishing quality research for more than 50 years. The Journal publishes preventive medicine, public health, microbiology, and other medically related research. Throughout its history, the Journal of Preventive Medicine Vietnamese edition has received enthusiastic support from researchers, scientists, medical practitioners and interested readers in Vietnam.
I welcome you to the inaugural issue of the Vietnam Journal of Preventive Medicine (VJPM) published in English. Although this publication bears the name of the Journal of Preventive Medicine, the VJPM contains articles describing original research not previously or jointly published in another journal. It is our aim to provide high quality, cutting-edge research to both the Vietnamese and the international scientific communities. Our goal in publishing an English language journal in Vietnam is to present our medical research to the global scientific community. By engaging with our international colleagues we hope to both improve the quality of our research and also increase the potential for international research collaborations beneficial to all parties.
I ask for and encourage submission of pertinent research articles to the journal and request suggestions from our contributors and readers to help us continually improve the quality of our product.
Finally, on behalf of the editorial board and staff of the VJPM, I look forward to working with you and serving the international scientific community in the years to come.
Professor Dang Duc Anh
