Attend: 2023 Africa CDC Youth Pre-Conference

What: Africa CDC Youth Pre Conference, ‘Youth Leadership for a Safer and Healthier Africa’

When: 25–26 November, 2023

Where: Lusaka, Zambia

The Africa Centres for Disease Control (Africa CDC) will be holding the 2023 Africa CDC’s Youth Pre-Conference (YPC 2023) with the aim to provide a platform for exchange of innovative solutions to institutionalise youth leadership in public health in Africa.

African youths constitute over 65 percent of the continent’s population, and behind this number are young health professionals and health advocates who hold great potential to innovate and advance Africa’s health.

The general objective of the conference is therefore to advance and institutionalise the strategic engagement between Africa CDC and young people by providing a space for young people to critically reflect on the current state of public health in Africa.

Participants will be representatives of each African Union member state as well as public health institutions, health organisations, startups, and youth-led medical associations and networks.
