Community Talk : 20 December at 11 am : PRIMAFAMED

PRIMAFAMED : Building Primary Health Care in Sub-Saharan Africa with VLIRUOS-support 2003-2023: looking back at the future!

In 1997, the Departments of Family Medicine in Flanders and South Africa initiated a collaborative effort known as FaMec (Family Medicine Education Consortium). By 2005, the consortium expanded, welcoming departments from East- and Central Africa.

Fast forward to 2008,  the 'Primary Health Care and Family Medicine' network was launched, spanning 45 institutions across 25 Sub-Saharan African countries.

Since 2019, Primafamed embraced Africanisation, shifting coordination from the University of Ghent to Stellenbosch University. In this community talk, the researchers will unveil a SWOT analysis and share insights as a WHO Collaborating Centre.
