Amref Health Africa jointly with the World Health Organization (WHO) organized the first Amref Health Africa International conference which was held on 24 – 26 November, 2014, at Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya.

The conference was an excellent platform for researchers, policy makers, health practitioners, advocates and civil society organizations to share and exchange evidence drawn from research and experiences in health development programmes in Africa.

The theme for the first conference was: From evidence to action: lasting health change for Africa. The Conference brought together 439 delegates from 20 countries, seven from outside Africa. The conference was generously sponsored by national and international organizations and agencies.

The conference aimed to explore and debate on how Africa can influence the global health agenda to improve health and human rights on the continent.
