URGENT: AFREhealth 2020 Symposium

It is with great regret that AFREhealth announces the postponement of the AFREhealth Symposium that was to be held in Addis Ababa in August 2020,
due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Symposium will be provisionally moved to a date in November,
which will be communicated once the Addis Symposium hosts have had discussions with the conference venue and hotels.

We will also inform you soonest of the changes in abstract submission dates and other timelines related to the Symposium.

We are hosting regular webinars on the pandemic, dates are posted on the website as well as recordings and slides from the webinars.

Stay safe and well.

Marietjie de Villiers, AFREhealth President 





Stakeholders from medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health,
pharmacy, laboratory science, nutrition, etc.
must overcome traditional barriers and work together
to address Africa’s health challenges.






Membership is open to African and external stakeholders committed
