Pan-African Experiences of Autism: Transforming Rights Into Reality: 4 & 5 December 2017

CAN is pleased to share with you an opportunity to exchange knowledge on Autism in Africa.  There are very few studies on autism in the African context but it is clear that specialist autism support services are limited across the continent – and in some areas are non-existent. To learn more about Autism, an international  conference is due for Dec. 4 &5 2017 in Sierra Leone. Pan-African Experiences of Autism: Transforming Rights Into Reality, practical conference is aimed at developing working partnerships to transform rights into reality. The conference will bring together a selection of best practice and perspectives from African countries, with the aim of providing opportunities for individuals, organisations and others to share experiences, information and to plan genuine strategies for transformation.

The conference will be aimed firmly at action and at developing future collaborative partnerships – international, continental, regional and national – to contribute towards the enhancement of capacity. click here for details
