This edition of the African Journal of Health Professions Education delves into the educational needs of health sciences training in Africa.

She follows the sociopolitical and educational currents that led to change over the past three decades and describes the modern tenets of education that have guided curriculum reform across the country. Finally, she closes her paper off with a description of the challenges that we currently face in health sciences education and the priorities we need to focus on in the coming decade.
