The International Federation of Medical Students’ Association (IFMSA) Sub-Regional Training (SRT) is a conference that brings together students from all over Africa. The conference aims at building capacity of Medical students in Africa on matters pertaining global health, volunteering, medical education, youth empowerment, reproductive and sexual Health. It will also equip them with the necessary soft skills that they will need in their future profession as Medical Practitioners.
This event is scheduled to hold from the 15th to 18th of June 2017 at Abuja, Nigeria with the theme “Global Health Today”
Here are some of the program highlights:
Lecture series on E-medicine, Global Health, Gender Based Violence and Safe & portable water for all.
Training New Trainers and Training of Medical Education Trainers.
The trainings would allow its members to tailor the workshops according to their more specific needs. Effective global health education for example, provides students with an understanding of the broader determinants of health and healthcare delivery. It also encourages students to consider the ways in which these determinants transcend national borders, and the profound impacts of globalization on health.
Goal Six of UN SDGs was created to achieve ‘access to clean water and sanitation for all. Today 88% of all deaths from diarrheal diseases are attributed to inadequate access to Clean, Safe and portable water. These target areas of water, sanitation and hygiene are so inexplicably linked that all must be targeted together and achieved together to create sustainable change.
Adequate Safe and portable water is a social determinant of health, so therefore it is vital that the IFMSA addresses and works on this topic.
Expected participants include, Medical students, future health professionals, and indirectly the communities served by the medical students.
