The theme of this year’s meeting, “Accelerating the gains and closing the gaps towards achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Eastern Africa Region,” aligns with AFIDEP’s mission to promote evidence-informed policies and practices for sustainable development across Africa. 

AFIDEP’s participation in this event underscores our commitment to providing credible evidence to decision-makers that will advance reproductive health outcomes in Eastern Africa.
