Afriwon

AfriWon RENAISSANCE is the African Organization for Young and Future General Practitioners (GPs)/Family Physicians (FPs) under the aegis of WONCA Africa (African Region of World Organization of Family Doctors). It was launched in Prague June 2013 at the Wonca World Conference. 

The main objective of AfriWon RENAISSANCE is to organize young and future GPs/FM through:
  • Providing a forum in support for trainees and young GPs / FPs in Africa. 
  • Developing Family Medicine and Primary Health Care in Africa in service, training and research amongst young doctors. 
  • Establishing a communication network between African trainees and young GPs / FPs and identifying their concerns, doubts and needs and helping to address them. 
  • Encouraging a global and youthful African perspective, with global exposure and leadership development. 
All undergraduates interested in the specialty of General Practice and Family Medicine, postgraduates in it and young doctors in the first 5 years after specialization in GP/FM in the WONCA Africa region are eligible to become members.
