Great Thanks and appreciation to the Journal of Pakistan Medical Association (JPMA) for hosting a supplementary issue containing the articles presented in our 14th Scientific International Conference held in the venues of the College of Medicine, Mustansiriryah University. We received a good response from both national and international contributors (85 submissions). We followed strict criteria in the selection of the eligible studies. A large scientific committee primarily assessed all the submitted articles. Then a smaller scientific committee did a further filtration. The latter committee only selected the articles that followed the JPMA's strict criteria for publication. All the peer review process was in a double-blind manner. Finally, 24 articles made it to the final supplementary issue presented here. We thank our contributors, our team of reviewers, and our conference committees who worked hard day and night and made this achievement possible. We hope you will appreciate the quality of articles in this supplement, and take an active part in our next 15th conference meeting of the College of Medicine, Mustansiriyah University.
