Tunis- Tunisia (PANA) -- Two new medical magazines were launched on Tuesday to fi ll the gap in the Tunisian media on health issues, according to their promoter, M rs Cinda Baccar.
Mrs Baccar, a lawyer, who edits â?Livret Santأ©â? and who has passion for jour nalism, said at a press conference that she wanted to â?give through Medic'Info and Pharm'Info useful medical aid that meets the true need expressed by health p r ofessionalsâ?.
â?Such publications exist abroad, why not in Tunisia where we have doctors whos e competence is known beyond our borders, as well as installations worthy of dev e loped countries,â? said the woman called â?the iron woman of Tunisian journalis mâ?.
Mrs Baccar said she would publish advanced medical information and deal with iss ues likely to expand the knowledge of health professionals by focusing on distin g uished specialists whether they are doctors, dentists, veterinary surgeons, chem i sts or biologists.
These two magazines come shortly after the launch in the past few weeks of two p rivate radio stations, Shems FM (Soleil) and Express FM, which specialise in eco n omic reporting.
