Public Health Conference

Theme: Role of professional associations in ensuring quality UHC via standards and protocols

Overview:
The Public Health Conference during Medic East Africa is in collaboration with the Kenya Medical Association.  The KMA is a national association, developed to promote quality care around the country along all specialized healthcare fields.  This conference provides the opportunity to bring healthcare professionals together who are dedicated to upholding and improving patient care.  

It is a unique event that features the various medical societies within the Kenya Medical Association to present, not only their work, but their ideas, thoughts and practical viewpoints to cultivating healthcare around the country.  

With the extensive move towards universal healthcare coverage around Kenya, these societies play a vital role in developing standards, practices and regulations to guarantee UHC is achieved and sustained. 

Aimed at policy makers, public health specialists and other senior level healthcare professionals, this programme will give public health stakeholders a platform to discuss the issues related to UHC, and the standard of care.
