I am pleased to inform you that the host country for the 5th AfHEA Scientific Conference, to take place from 11 - 14 March 2019, will be Ghana! Read on for a summary of how this decision was arrived at.
The AfHEA Board and Executives decided to adopt an open and transparent process in selecting the host country for the 2019 conference. This was done to ensure transparency and fair participation from all AfHEA member countries, and as part of continuous improvement of our processes and procedures. In the process, AfHEA came up with a total of 14 criteria (see Table 1 below) to assess the likelihood of countries to host the 2019 AfHEA conference. Initially, following the 2016 conference in Rabat, five countries indicated an interest in or were suggested for bidding to host the next conference.
