Africa SIG

Vision and Aims

The FPH Africa Special Interest Group (SIG) has been established to represent the response and contribution of health professionals towards the development and implementation of effective and sustainable solutions to protect and improve the health and wellbeing of people in Africa.


  • Enable public health professionals from the SIG to provide equitable support to all countries across the African continent.
  • Focus efforts to add value to improving public health in Africa by acting as an umbrella group with an overview of the work being
    undertaken by several partner groups.
  • Offer cost-effective public health consultancy to Africa on a charitable basis. Also volunteer the skills, expertise and time of its members.
  • Work with partner organisations in the UK and elsewhere; and establish and maintain a two-way respectful partnership with public health partners in Africa.
