AfroPHC Conference

AfroPHC is planning a 3-day Launch Conference 19th – 21st June 2020 at the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.  We hope to develop AfroPHC as the voice of the PC/PHC team and its supporters, sharing and supporting each other in advocating for PHC and a strong team-based approach to delivery.

There will be an Advanced Practice Africa Region Symposium on the 18th of June 2020 at the same venue. This will explore the development of Advanced Nurse Practice in Africa.

Primafamed, an African network for family medicine education/research in over 25 countries, will also have its annual meeting on the 17th June 2020 at the same venue. This usually explores family doctor education and research but will focus on team issues in this meeting.

Various leaders in PHC across Africa will be there: family doctors from WONCA Africa, clinical officers from the African Network of Associate Clinicians, family nurse practitioners from the Association of African Advanced Nurse Practitioners, nurse leaders from the International Council of Nurses, public health practitioners from the African region of Towards Unity for Health, health educators/researchers from AfreHealth, multidisciplinary team members from AfriPEN, community health worker/community leaders from AMREF and a variety of other key stakeholders. We are expecting key people from WHO Global, WHO AFRO and World Bank to be there.

The likely cost for teas/lunches will be $25 per person per day for African delegates and $50 per person for non-African delegates. Payment will be by Paypal.
