2024 East Africa Regional Meeting

CCIH is excited to hold an in-person meeting May 21-24, 2024 at Brackenhurst Conference Centre in Limuru, Kenya. Our theme is Mental Health Matters: Speaking Up for Mental Health in Christian Communities.

Join health program staff, community health workers, health practitioners, Christian health association leaders and staff, church and lay leaders, psychologists and psychiatrists, and mental health practitioners to discuss and learn how to support programming for mental health. We will explore how to include mental health in facility and community health services, dive into the particulars around perinatal mental health, and how to support caregivers, your staff, and self-care.

We seek participants from East Africa, including Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Uganda who bring information, ideas, and views that are insightful, practical, and will stimulate discussion.

If you have ideas for a presentation that will inspire dialogue, complete this presentation submission form  by October 26, 2023. Interested in sponsoring the meeting and connecting with East African Christian health leaders? Learn more about Sponsorship here.
