CUGH 2021 Virtual Conference

AFREhealth-CUGH Working Group Satellite Session

AFREhealth and CUGH: Implementing the goals of a collaborative partnership

Date: Friday, March 5, 2021

Time: 8:00am - 11:00am CT

The year 2020 has been a year of unprecedented times. The ACWG planned a CUGH Satellite meeting but this could not happen as the CUGH 2020 conference was cancelled. Just like many other groups, this prevented us from implementing activities because of the global challenges and focus on COVID 19. Therefore there is a need to refocus and see what the three ACWG subcommittees plan to do going forward. The session will start with a brief overview of the structure and functions of the organizations of AFREhealth and CUGH. A plenary talk by a prominent African expert on Covid19 vaccination will be presented. The three subcommittees will break out into separate roundtable discussion groups to reflect on progress (e.g. what worked, what didn’t work) and to discuss how to more effectively implement their specific goals.
