Conference on Public Health in Africa – A New Public Health Order in the 21st Century

Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention


The inaugural 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.
