So many things about this conference make us excited to welcome you to share in what promises to be the biggest gathering of emergency care practitioners in Africa. For starters…this is the 5th African Conference on Emergency Medicine…we’ve been to Ghana, Ethiopia, Egypt, Rwanda and now you get to experience the Magical Kenya! Also this year the African Federation for Emergency Medicine (AFEM) turns 10 years!! If you know anything about Africa’s mortality rates, then you agree with us the 5th and 10th birthday celebrations are worth the fiesta, so we promise you an experience like none other.
Emergency care in Africa has taken off over the last couple of years thanks to the concerted efforts of a lot of practitioners locally and from all over the world. Many countries have initiated residency programs, some have developed robust policies on emergency care and a good number are making significant strides to strengthen their emergency care systems and the evidence is clear…We Are Saving Lives!!
So, pack your bags and join us as we immerse you in the best emergency care education from Africa and beyond brought to you by an expertly selected faculty with a vast experience of knowledge and skills. The pre-conference courses, skills labs, and the conference presentations have specifically been selected to meet everyone’s needs whether you work in a fancy rich hospital or you are in the rural parts of Mali…what you learn during the conference will change how you practice emergency care.
And in case you have the time, feel free to come earlier or stay-on just a little bit longer and enjoy the great sights and sounds Kenya has to offer…there is a reason we keep being voted the world leading tourist destination year after year!
