To write for us

We are constantly looking for medical content writers. Even though Health4Naija is accessible by a global audience, we specifically seek content written by Nigerians in Nigeria or in the global diaspora for the purpose of creating healthy Nigerian communities through health education.

We will publish original healthcare-related content from any allied health or medical science student, graduate, or professional from Nigeria. When your article is published on Health4Naija, you will retain the rights to your article and can publish elsewhere.

3 writing formats are available
