Background

The Africa Interprofessional Education Network (AfrIPEN) and the University of Namibia invite you to the First Symposium for Interprofessional Education in Africa. This symposium follows the establishment of AfrIPEN in 2015 and the Network’s first strategic planning workshop in 2016. AfrIPEN’s aim is to establish interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPE) as integral part in training the health workforce and in the effective functioning of systems for health in Sub-Saharan Africa by advocating for, collaborating on, promoting and sharing good practice of IPE. Collaboration and participation from all stakeholders are important. All participants are expected to share their experiences (whether they present an abstract or not) and learn from each other. This will not be a symposium where you can just sit back and listen. Participation is required! Accepted presentations will be posted on the www.afripen.org website.

Symposium themes
