From the 18th -24th November 2018, the Federation of African Medical Students’ Associations General Assembly (FAMSA GA) will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in grand style by hosting the first ever health conference of its kind at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
With healthcare being central to overall development of a region, the General Assembly, whose vision is improving the health of the African people, is organizing a week-long conference themed: Repositioning Healthcare in Africa for Sustainable Development. Of the 17 interwoven global Sustainable Development Goals, SDG 3 is specific to health. The FAMSA General Assembly is a proposed solution that will bring together young vibrant minds as well as professionals and relevant stakeholders in both the public and private sectors from across Africa and beyond to discuss ideas and initiate steps towards the goal.
This strategic event will involve key-stakeholders in the healthcare industry in Africa and the world, to interact with healthcare students and youths to reflect, debate, discuss and proffer novel recommendations towards a healthier future. The conference will feature keynote address by Dr. Matshidiso Moeti (WHO Regional Director), plenary sessions, workshops, trainings, hackathon sessions, and scientific presentations on carefully selected subthemes all related and contributory to the goal.
Over 1,000 delegates including Medical students, Healthcare professionals (HCPs), Policymakers, Researchers, Academicians, Industry experts from across the globe will be at this conference and it promises to be effective in stirring a change in the African healthcare sector.
