UK-Africa Health Summit 2024

21 February, 2024

Building on the long-established platform provided by the UK-East Africa Health Summit, this conference will explore the multifaceted dimensions of global health by shedding light on the intricate web of challenges faced by the health workforce worldwide and the growing movement of health professionals engaging in cross border collaboration.

The UK-Africa Health Summit 2024: Accelerating Collaborative Approaches to Health Workforce Sustainability and Antimicrobial Stewardship

18 – 19 March 2024

09:00 – 17:00

Royal College of General Practitioners, 30 Euston Square, London, NW1 2FB

CPD accreditation will be available for conference attendees.

Day 1 of the Summit will focus on health workforce mobility, including diaspora health workers who we affectionately call “health diplomats” as they move with ease between health systems. Breakout sessions on Day 1 will include reflections on the opportunities and challenges this brings, building on our 2021 report ‘From Drain to Gain’. We will also consider how to mobilise the voices of diaspora healthcare workers, helping everyone to speak up on issues including progress toward Universal Health Coverage.

Day 2 of the Summit will provide a platform for Health Partnerships to share challenges and lessons they have learned across a range of topics to consider what best practice looks like (such as THET Principles of Partnership, lessons in sustainability, etc). We will also be joined by Professor Dame Sally Davies, UK Special Envoy on AMR, who will share her reflections on how the Health Partnership community can support real progress in tackling AMR ahead of the 2024 UNGA High-Level Meeting on AMR in September.

Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite:
