Call for abstracts: ICML+AHILA 2021, 21-25 June, South Africa

31 October, 2020

Forwarded from the International Federation of Library Associations discussion forum. HIFA stands ready to contribute to the success of this event.


We are pleased to announce that The International Congress of Medical Librarians (ICML) will be coming to the African continent for the first time in 2021. The Association for Health Information and Libraries in Africa (AHILA), an active regional network, are the perfect partners.

With less than ten years to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, our joint theme A call for action: Engaging to save lives reflects the contributions that medical librarians and other health information professionals are making by connecting, engaging, and ultimately improving health and saving lives.

Our call for papers, posters and lightning talks is open.

With thanks
