The Africa Health Agenda International Conference (AHAIC) 2023 aims to be the most unique high impact Africa-led convening that brings together diverse stakeholders from around the world to not only discuss Africa’s health challenges and opportunities but also to create an opportunity for networking and support City of Kigali’s quest to eliminate non-communicable diseases (NCDs) through Wogging.
Wogging is a new buzzword in the field of fitness and it blends walking, running and jogging. The event will take place on 5th March 2023 ahead of the conference that begins on 6th March along designated roads.
