East Africa Healthcare Federation (EAHF) partners: Uganda Healthcare Federation (UHF), Association of Private Health Facilities in Tanzania (APHFTA), Rwanda Healthcare Federation (RHF) and Burundi Healthcare Federation (BHF) have confirmed their participation to the EAHF conference in Nairobi, Kenya, showing great interest and support.

The conference to be held this year from March 2nd to 4th at the Safari Park Hotel will bring together organisations from across East Africa both within the healthcare and non-healthcare spheres.

In confirming their participation, APHFTA’s CEO Dr. Samuel Ogillo highlighted the success of the previous EAHF conferences as they brought together East Africa Community through the health agenda. “The coming together of top officials in the East Africa healthcare sphere, both private and public, will strengthen the relationship between EAHF members,” he added.

UHF’s CEO Dr. Ian Clarke also confirmed their participation saying Uganda Healthcare Federation is delighted to fully support KHF as the host for the EAHF 2014. UHF has benefited from the support that Kenya Healthcare Federation and Association of Private Health Facilities in Tanzania (APHFTA) has provided over the last few years. Further in his statement he added that top government officials and the private sectors from Uganda are eagerly looking forward to the visit to Nairobi in March.

UHF played host to the launch of the EAHF conference in 2012 in Kampala, focusing on topics around the theme “Partnerships: Harnessing Opportunities through Innovation” and boasted attendants from both the private and public health sectors of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. APHFTA played host to the second annual conference earlier this year, focusing on topics around the theme “Improving Quality of Healthcare through Public-Private Partnerships.”
