13th Congress of the Association for Health Information and Libraries in Africa

The programme is up on their website and it looks as though the programme of papers, workshops and time to talk to your colleagues from other countries will be an exciting mix. The two workshops are on:

  • Finding, Organizing, Managing and Using Health Information (Supported by National Library of Medicine, USA)
  • Public Access to Health Information (PAHI) in 3 languages i.e. English, French and Portuguese (Supported by Partnerships in Health Information, UK).

And we shouldn’t forget the AHILA Strategic Plan which has recently been published.

We don’t yet know what the papers will be on except that the broad theme is on Enhancing Access to Health Information in Africa.

Chipo Msengezi from ITOCA will be there and so shall I. As editors of this blog we are very keen to encourage more posts from African librarians and information scientists. So we hope to meet you there! (Unfortunately Nigel Palmer the 3rd editor cannot join us in person, but will be there in spirit.)

Jean Shaw, Phi
