Obstetrical and gynaecological articles related to safe motherhood published in the East African Medical Journal between 1914 and 1989 were reviewed.
A total of 133 topics were published.
Out of these, 84 (63.2%) were obstetrical and 49 (36.8%) gynaecological.
Out of the obstetrical topics, 66 were pregnancy related, 12 were public health and the rest medical topics.
A rapid increase in the number of the relevant topics is seen especially after 1970.
This is probably due to the increase in the number of of obstetricians training locally in the African region and the international nature of the Journal during the last two decades.
