Dear HIFA colleagues,
We hope that you are all well. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2-day physical conference we were planning for September this year has been cancelled. Instead, we are having a webinar, with a live Q & A session on Friday 18 September 2020, as follows:
IET Webinar "How appropriate healthcare technologies contribute in a public health emergency".
This webinar will mark the 20th anniversary of our first AHT event in the year 2000. AHT2020 aims to bring together those who are motivated to improve the healthcare of those living in low resource settings and who enjoy sharing their projects and collaborating with others.
