  • Dr. Lolade Wright

    A truly unique event, rich in content and quality. Presentations and panel discussions were quite relevant. Excellent concept, planning and organization.

  • Dr. John Amuasi

    Aside being successful in bringing together high level African and international stakeholders and being rich in scientific content, it most importantly demonstrated that African researchers and policy makers are now more and more willing to take charge of addressing some of the health challenges that face the continent.
