AMJI Cover Vol1 Issue1Editor’s Notes

The inaugural issue of Academic Medical Journal of India is themed around nutritional problems in the country with a special focus on childhood malnutrition.

A comprehensive view of nutritional issues in the country is presented in the Perspective article by Anish et al., which brings to sharp focus the policy changes that are long overdue in this field. Scientific evidence on the extent of malnourishment among children is provided from two states by Dhasekaran et al. and Joice et al. While an issue closely related to childhood nutrition is addressed by Krishnan et al., Jeesha C Haran calls upon the journal to take up advocacy for the regulation of junk food.

Other major concerns addressed in this issue are control of mosquito borne diseases by Nujum et al. and Mayavanathan et al. and prevalence of diabetes and prediabetes by Jose et al. Kaliyadan elaborates on the use of Dermoscopy and Vishvanathan et al. presents a rare case in obstetrics practice.
