Reminder: October 31, 2018 is final deadline for individual abstract submission for AfHEA’s 2019 scientific conference in Ghana

Dear colleagues,

Extension of abstract submission deadline for AfHEA’s 2019 scientific conference

Dear AfHEA members,

The co-chairs of the Scientific Committee and management of AfHEA take this opportunity to politely remind you that the deadline for individual abstract submissions to AfHEA’s 5th scientific conference (to take place from 11-14 March 2019 in Accra, Ghana) will expire on 31st August 2018 at midnight. However, we still have some space in our scientific programme. We have therefore decided to postpone the deadline to allow for additional submissions until October 30th, or until the available spaces are filled, whichever comes sooner, after which we will bring the abstract submission process to a close. We therefore urge those who intended to submit abstracts but were unable to meet the August 31st deadline to do so at the earliest possible.

Dates and Venue for 5th AfHEA Scientific Conference

Dear Colleagues,

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.
