AFENET Early Career Epidemiologists find value in IEA

Early Career Epidemiologists attending the African Field Epidemiologists Network (AFENET) Scientific Conference seemed to value IEA. The conference was held in Maputo, Mozambique, during 12-16 November. Representing IEA at the conference were IEA President Henrique Barros, IEA Africa Regional Councilor Akindele O. Adebiyi and members Armand Nkwescheu and Samuel Akinbosede.

More than 65 epidemiologists stopped by the IEA booth during the first day of the conference, and by the conference end, 41 early career epidemiologists had joined IEA.  During the meeting, IEA President was also able to visit with the minister of public health.

The next meeting in Africa will be the IEA-Africa Regional Conference, 14-17 April, 2019 in Maputo, Mozambique. Pictures from the AFENET meeting are featured below.
