ARUA 2021 Biennial Conference, 18-20 November 2021

The African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA) 2021 Biennial Conference will bring together experts from universities, research institutions, government, industry, civil society, international organizations, etc., to discuss the different steps that African economies need to take in order to face global public health challenges squarely. In reflecting on the prominent lessons from the handling of previous and current pandemics, the medium to long term implications of measures and steps taken to contain the spread of the virus in Africa will be the focus of the conference. This will be done in recognition of the interconnectedness of the various issues involved in dealing with a pandemic.

The organisers encourage papers from the Health and Allied sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities. Special panel sessions on the conference theme are welcome. Persons interested in participating in the conference may send an abstract of not more than one page to the organisers at before 31st May 2021.
