The Africa Health Agenda International Conference (AHAIC) 2023 kicked off on a high note on Sunday 5th March with a wogging (walk, jog and run) event to promote health and climate action during the Kigali Car Free Day.
The first day of the conference saw hundreds of participants take to the streets of Kigali to raise awareness on the need for urgent action to address climate change and the spread of both infectious and non-communicable diseases on the continent, key themes that will take centre stage at AHAIC 2023.
From 6th to 8th March, over 1,000 delegates from across Africa and beyond are convening at the Kigali Conference Centre to engage in discourse centred on this year’s conference theme: Resilient Health Systems for Africa: Re-envisioning the Future Now.
Dozens of sessions curated to explore key issues at the nexus of health and climate change will take place each day, giving participants the opportunity to network, share learnings and develop solutions to advance Africa’s health and climate agenda.
