Juta MedicalBrief — Africa’s Medical News Digest

MedicalBrief is Africa’s authoritative weekly medical news digest, providing a succinct summary of the latest medical research, news and policy developments, with the links for speedy access to the original source documents.

The e-newsletter is delivered directly to subscribers by weekly email to keep the busy clinician abreast of latest developments.

Circulation and Demographics

MedicalBrief was launched in March 2014, with the first edition reaching around 150 people. There since has been phenomenal growth and MedicalBrief now reaches in excess of 50 000 subscribers weekly, comprising approximately 37 000 registered medical practitioners as well as ancillary medical professions, administrators and public officials.
More than 90% of subscribers are in South Africa, but MedicalBrief has a growing base of southern and east African and international readers.

In November 2015 the MedicalBrief website was established as an online hub for detailed articles and background information.

MedicalBrief was acquired by Juta and Company (Pty) Ltd in June 2022.
