Call for speakers and moderators -1st African Patients Congress

Thursday, 3 June 2021

The 1st virtual African Patients Congress (APC 2020) will bring together our regional membership with a variety of high-level healthcare stakeholders to share their vision and experience as to how patients can engage with and co-create in building back better the African health system post-pandemic. This is a unique opportunity for the patient community to come together, share the work they carry out on a daily basis and establish meaningful connections with other healthcare stakeholders.

IAPO is committed to broadening the participation and contribution of African patient organizations to the APC 2021 to ensure this is truly and fully a patient-driven event. For this purpose, we have established a Call for IAPO’s African members and other African patient organizations to speak and moderate sessions at APC 2021.
