CPHIA 2021


12/14/2021 - 12/16/2021
The 1st International Conference on Public Health in Africa, a unique platform for African researchers, policymakers and stakeholders.
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 perilously limited access to vaccines across Africa, it has laid bare deep inequities in access to healthcare and scientific innovations. African countries are facing significant numbers of COVID cases, in addition to widespread negative impacts on endemic disease programs, food insecurity, gender-based violence and economic wellbeing. Urgent action must be taken across Africa to fuel innovation and build resilient health systems capable of addressing multiple threats.

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 scientific conference, hosted by the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.
