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

Dear colleagues,
The co-chairs of the Scientific Committee and Management of African Health Economics and Policy Association (AfHEA) take this opportunity to politely remind practitioners and researchers in the areas of health economists and financing, health systems and policy, public health, implementation science, including policy makers and advocates etc. 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 October 2018 at midnight. 
 
The deadline was extended to allow for additional submissions until October 31st, 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.

  2. The effectiveness of aid in the building of health systems
  3. PHC and Healthcare financing

  5. Key methodological changes in health economics and policy analysis specific to Africa
  6. The role of research institutions and donors in building capacity in health economics and policy analysis
