Médecine d'Afrique noire is the oldest journal published by APIDPM (65 years) that publishes also Tropical Dental Journal (40 years) et Médecine du Maghreb (32 years).
In January 2000, Santé Tropicale was created with the slogan "We build the African medical web" and with the aim of developing electronic versions of its journals. In 2006, APIDPM was created to generate the necessary resources for the development of Santé Tropicale sites.
For developing countries, mobile phone technology is a major evolutionary key as it helps to alleviate the lack of infrastructure.
Mobile telephony networks allow the use of an Internet (in a broad sense) whose value, in this context, is invaluable.
