Organisation d'accueil : African Network for Health Knowledge Management and Communication
Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil : AfriAfya (African Network for Health Knowledge Management and Communication) is a leading agency in the knowledge management and communication with rural and other marginalised communities. Established in Kenya in April 2000, AfriAfya was set up to explore harnessing modern information and communication strategies for community health and development. AfriAfya is a consortium of seven Kenya-based health development agencies including the Ministry of Health, Aga Khan Health Services, Kenya, African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF), CARE Kenya, Christian Health Association of Kenya (CHAK), HealthNet Kenya, PLAN Kenya and World Vision International, Kenya.

The idea of AfriAfya was based on the realization that while modern approaches had provided commercial entities, universities, ministries, research institutions and big hospitals with information and assistance in their activities, it had done very little for rural communities, particularly rural Kenyan (and African) communities in the area of health.
