PHASA conference

Since PHASA’s inception in 2000, we have hosted a biennial conference. In 2008, the PHASA Executive took a decision to hold annual conferences, alternating these between major urban centres and smaller towns in more rural provinces.

Through our annual conferences, PHASA brings unique and objective perspectives to national and international debates on public health and development issues. The conference also fulfils a networking and capacity building function for our constituency and advocates for a comprehensive approach to disease prevention, health promotion and protection, and inter-sectoral action to address the social determinants of health.
