International Conference on Public Health in Africa 2021

The 1st International Conference on Public Health in Africa (CPHIA)

The 1st International Conference on Public Health in Africa (CPHIA 2021) comes at a critical time on the continent and in the world. 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 healthcare and scientific innovations. CPHIA will create a unique platform where African researchers, policymakers and stakeholders can share perspectives and research findings in public health, while ushering in a new era of strengthened scientific collaboration and innovation across the continent.

This will become an annual conference, hosted by the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.
