Our conference

It is the first WONCA Africa Conference in East Africa and a source of great excitement for all countries in the region. We hope you will join us to share in this excitement.

Register for the conference and submit your abstract as soon as you can. The theme of “People Centred Primary Care” promises to galvanize many stakeholders behind the efforts of family physicians as part of the African solution for Primary Health Care, as envisioned by the Astana Declaration.

Tourism in East Africa

This is conference should not be just another conference for you. You are coming to East Africa: a place of great beauty and variety. You can make a stopover to any number of tourist hotspots. You ought to google “Tourist attractions in East Africa” but here are some: Zanzibar, Mount Kilimanjaro and Serengeti in Tanzania, Watamu, Lake Nakuru and Masai warriors in Kenya, Omo River and Lalibela in Ethiopia, and mountain gorillas in Rwanda. You can experience wildlife safaris, whitewater rafting, high-end camping, unique culture and exquisite cuisine across the region.

You don’t need to venture too far to taste the beauty that abounds. Entebbe, the town, is close to Kampala and has shores to Lake Victoria, the second largest lake in the world. Visit Uganda tourism http://ugandatourismcenter.com/top-10-tourist-attractions-in-uganda/ to see what is on offer in Uganda. It will blow your mind. June is also the month of pilgrims visiting the Uganda Martyrs Shrine in Namugongo. It is a unique opportunity to taste the religious culture of Africa with visitors from as far afield as Nigeria planning to visit the shrine.

See you in Uganda in June 2019!
