What: First International Conference on Public Health in Africa

When: 14–16 December, 2021

Where: Online

African Union, through the Africa Centres for Disease Control (Africa CDC), is organising a webinar on Public Health in Africa.

The event, which was postponed earlier this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, offers a unique platform for African researchers, policymakers and stakeholders to share scientific findings and public health perspectives.

The conference also offers them an opportunity to collaborate on research, innovation and public health across Africa.

This event comes at a critical time as Covid-19 has strained health systems globally, and with limited access to vaccines in Africa, the pandemic has laid bare deep inequities in access to health care and scientific innovations.

Economic and social disruptions caused by Covid-19 have threatened even more lives and livelihoods, putting years of human development progress at risk of reversal.

Over the course of three days, scientific tracks focusing on the Covid-19 vaccine rollout, health systems strengthening and learnings from the Covid-19 response will be covered through keynote and panel presentations, plenaries and participatory sessions with a special focus on skill-building for early career professionals.
