The conference planned for July 2023 in Kampala, Uganda has been postponed due to current concerns about potential local health risks.

The conference planning committee has listened to members’ concerns and puts the safety of conference delegates first. The committee has therefore decided to delay the conference until we are assured that the risks are as low as possible, aiming for later in 2023 or early 2024.

We will use the intervening period to prepare for the conference in Uganda, building towards the event through a series of webinars. With the aim of the conference focused on strengthening our networks and building an¬†African Coalition, we plan to hear from key agents in children’s rights and child protection; existing regional networks in other parts of the world; funders interested in supporting such work; and much more!

Thank you for your understanding of this decision. While it’s disappointing for now, we know it will lead to an event that’s even better!
