AfHEA-2019

Fifth African Health Economics and Policy Association Scientific Conference

Mon, 11 Mar 2019 – Thu, 14 Mar 2019

The African Health Economics and Policy Association (AfHEA) is pleased to invite experts, analysts, practitioners and researchers in the relevant health fields to submit abstracts for the fifth Scientific Conference in Accra, Ghana from 11 to 14 March, 2019. The next conference also marks the 10th anniversary of AfHEA.

The broad theme of the conference is: Securing PHC for all: the foundation for making progress on UHC in Africa

This broad theme acknowledges the important role of PHC in the achievement of UHC. Strengthening PHC improves equity, accessibility and quality of care. Similarly, UHC ensures access to needed good quality health services irrespective of ability to pay. The two are therefore closely related. PHC is the main gateway to healthcare for the majority of the population, especially for those living in rural and underserved communities. A well-functioning PHC system will be able to respond to the health care needs of most of the population, including preventive, promotive and non-specialist clinical care, at a much lower cost than if similar services were provided at higher levels of the health care system. Thus securing PHC for all is a more cost-effective way to move towards the UHC agenda of any country, particularly for low income and lower middle income countries (LICs/LMICs) where the resource constraints are most severe.
