The College of Health Sciences (CHS) Principal, Prof. James Machoki and P-HERT team are representing the University of Nairobi at the 2nd African Forum for Research and Education in Health (AFREhealth) 2018 Symposium in Durban, South Africa from 3-8 August 2018.

AFREHealth is being hosted by the Developing Research, Innovation, Localisation and Leadership in South Africa (DRILL), a MEPI Junior Faculty program at the College of Health Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal, and Durban, South Africa.

Those accompanying the Principal are, Prof Elizabeth Obimbo, Chair, Department of Paediatrics and Child Health, Prof Dalton Wamalwa, P.I, P-HERT program, Dr Edwin Walong, P-HERT Fellow and a Lecturer, Department of Human Pathology and Dr Lydiah Maingi,  P-HERT Fellow and a Lecturer, Department of Psychology, Kenyatta University.

Participation in this conference is sponsored by MEPI Junior Faculty Program at UoN (P-HERT Program). Prof Wamalwa, Drs Walong and Maingi are presenting in this conference.

The theme for the Symposium is: “Towards Achieving Universal Health Coverage in Africa - Creating Synergies and Capacity through Education, Research and Quality Health Services”. AFREhealth is an African-designed and African owned initiative that seeks to partner African institutions and other stakeholders in building capacity in education, research and quality health care. AFREhealth recognizes that complex health challenges cannot be solved by one professional alone but rather require inter-professional approaches to education and research for effective service delivery and health improvements.

Thus this symposium is assembling African leaders and health professionals from Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Laboratory Science, Physiotherapy, Veterinary Medicine, Nutritionists, etc. to deliberate on health challenges in Africa. Topics such as Universal Health Coverage, Building Research Capacity, the Sustainable Development Goals, Financing health care in Africa and building partnerships for health system development between North-South and South-South African countries will be discussed.
