#AfCEM20! So much more than a conference
So many things about this conference make us excited to welcome you to share in what promises to be the biggest virtual gathering of emergency care practitioners in Africa. For starters…this is the 5th African Conference on Emergency Medicine…we’ve been to Ghana, Ethiopia, Egypt, Rwanda and now you get to experience the first ever exclusively digital emergency medicine conference in Africa! Also…this year the African Federation for Emergency Medicine (AFEM) turn 10 years!! If you know anything about Africa’s mortality rates, then you agree with us the 5th and 10th birthday celebrations are worth the fiesta, so we promise you an experience like none other.
Emergency care in Africa has taken off over the last couple of years thanks to the concerted efforts of a lot of practitioners locally and from all over the world. Many countries have initiated residency programs, some have developed robust policies on emergency care and a good number are making significant strides to strengthen their emergency care systems and the evidence is clear…We Are Saving Lives!!
