At the 15th International Conference on Urban Health, the ISC and the International Society for Urban Health came together to spearhead the Africa Working Group on Urban Health.
The group is a platform that brings together researchers working in or with a focus on urbanisation and health in Africa.
The Africa Working Group has the objective to connect and share resources — to improve connections and communication between African urban health researchers in the long term and foster research collaborations and capacity building.
The platform seeks to engage with non-research actors, funders, stakeholders and policymakers in the urban space. The working group engages with UN-Habitat, WHO Global, Wellcome Trust, and WHO Afro among others.
