Researchers and other actors are encouraged to submit abstracts on this broad theme or indeed on any other interesting, innovative or topical African health sector or systems research which, upon selection by our scientific committee, may be presented orally or in poster format at the conference.
Proposals for organized sessions are also invited from interested individuals or institutions. Please note however, that we do not accept proposals for plenary session themes or to organize such a session during the conference.
Abstracts may be submitted in English or French and must be structured as follows:
- Title of paper
- Name, institutional affiliation and e-mail address of presenting author
- Names of co-authors
- 400 word maximum abstract which indicates the aim and objectives of the paper, the methods used, and the key findings.
Abstracts must be submitted online at https://afhea.confex.com/afhea/intl14/cfp.cgi by 14 September 2013. They will be reviewed by the AfHEA conference Scientific Committee, which includes representatives from a wide range of African countries and is co-chaired by Prof. Di McIntyre of the University of Cape Town and Dr Jane Chuma from KEMRI in Kenya. Those submitting abstracts will be informed of the outcome by the end of September 2013.
