WONCA Africa Region Conference 2015


Welcome message from Organizing Chairman

I have the singular pleasure on behalf of the Host Organizing Committee to invite you to the peaceful city of Accra, Ghana for the Wonca Africa 2015 conference.

Family Medicine is growing in Ghana. Since its introduction into the country about two decades ago, we have seen tremendous support from the Ministry of Health, major state universities, National Health Insurance Authority, other health professionals and the populace at large. We expect that this conference will provide the platform to boost the development of Family Medicine in Ghana and the African continent to another level.

With an apt theme "Sustainable Development Goals for the Health of Africa", we are confident that this is an excellent opportunity for you to update your knowledge and skills for your practice and contribute to the development of the African Family Physician.

Accra is currently considered as the gateway to West Africa. From being touted by the United Nations as the most thriving democracy in sub Saharan Africa; to the exploits of the national soccer team (the Black Stars), Ghana is certainly the destination of choice. We assure you of a novel experience in nature and wildlife, forts and castles, culture and heritage; amazing waterfalls, historic sites, resorts and beaches; and excellent hotels.

Come and join us at Wonca Accra 2015 and in typical Ghanaian hospitality we say 'Akwaaba'.
