Welcome to Africa Interdisciplinary Health Conference (AfIHC) website. AfIHC is under the auspices of Push Aid Africa Inc. (PAAF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in USA and non-governmental organization in Ghana that inspires hope and contributes to the education and healthcare of underserved population of African descent, at home and abroad.

The conference is designed as a peer-reviewed forum for health-related researchers, practitioners, academics and students at all levels. It serves as a unique platform for professionals and students to showcase and discuss their innovative health-related researches. AfIHC is unique because it emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary exchange and therefore welcomes participants from a wide range of health-related disciplines. The purpose of this conference is to create a platform for the various healthcare providers in both clinical and academic/research settings to meet and discuss their research findings to promote evidence-based practices related to the health sector in Africa.

While this conference is designed for all health-related professionals, researchers, academics, and students, other professionals and stakeholders would benefit greatly from our annual conference.

So far, we have hosted two conferences in Accra, Ghana. Participants who attended our inaugural conference in 2018 came from 5 countries across the globe. In 2019, about 160 participants from 8 countries participated in the second conference. Our annual conference strives to offer great networking opportunities and the possibility for participants to meet and interact with leading academics, researchers, practitioners, colleagues, and friends as well as sponsors and exhibitors..

Our 2020 conference will be held in collaboration with Africa Interprofessional Education Network (AfrIPEN) at School of Public Health Auditorium, University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa from August 19 – 21, 2020 under the theme, Advancing Universal Health Coverage in Africa through Interdisciplinary Evidence-Based Practice and Collaboration. The local organizing committee of AfIHC 2020 is chaired by Dr. Elize Pietersen.
