3rd International Conference on Public Health in Africa
The annual International Conference on Public Health in Africa (CPHIA) is organised by the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) and provides a unique African-led platform for leaders across the continent to reflect on lessons learned in health and science, and align on a way forward for creating more resilient health systems.
CPHIA 2023 is the third iteration of the conference, which was held virtually in 2021 and in-person in Kigali, Rwanda, in 2022. This year, CPHIA will be hosted by the Zambian Ministry of Health and take place 27-30 November in Lusaka, Zambia, under the theme “Breaking Barriers: Repositioning Africa in the Global Health Architecture” – a theme that will be explored across nine plenary sessions, several parallel and abstract sessions and dozens of official side events. Building on the previous year’s convenings, CPHIA 2023 will showcase how the continent is breaking down barriers, reaffirming Africa as a powerhouse in science and innovation, generator of new knowledge and health products, and exemplar of progress.
As African countries accelerate the realization of a New Public Health Order, CPHIA is helping build a healthier, more prosperous Africa – for the continent, and the world.
