The Medical Women’s Association of Nigeria is proud to host the Near East & Africa Regional Congress of Medical Women’s International Association (MWIA) with the theme “Accelerating Universal Health Coverage.”
Following the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the international community has committed to ensuring healthy lives and promoting the health and wellbeing of all at all ages through achieving universal health coverage (UHC). UHC is aimed at ensuring that all people have the health care services they need, of sufficient quality to impact on health outcomes, without suffering financial hardship when paying for them. UHC is a critical component of sustainable development and poverty reduction, which are essential for the growth of societies that are equitable, inclusive and resilient. These are fundamental to reducing gender inequities and ensuring social protection for all; and also, evidence of a government’s commitment to improving the wellbeing of all its citizens and promoting health security and social cohesion.
UHC now drives the global health agenda and most African countries have integrated UHC as a goal into their national strategies. However, translation of these commitments into improved funding, equitable and quality health services and financial protection for all has remained slow and very challenging. Countries that are able to achieve UHC targets by 2030 will eliminate preventable maternal and child deaths, significantly reduce the prevalence of non communicable diseases, reduce financial hardship and catastrophe resulting from illness and strengthen resilience to public health emergencies thus building the foundations for long economic growth.
This event is expected to push towards this objective by attracting high quality research papers, oral presentations and workshops from across the region and other MWIA Regions. There will be interaction and exchange of ideas among professionals in medicine, science and global health actors. It will also serve as a forum for personal engagements and facilitate networking between individual members and various MWIA member associations.
Researches from all sectors especially health, social and
economic development, academia, industry and policy makers are invited to send the latest researches, innovations and best practices for the conference. Sharing such knowledge will accelerate their implementation and the eventual achievement of Universal Health Coverage
