The Wellcome Trust Africa Asia Communications Forum (AACF) is an annual meeting which aims to create and build a strong community of practice among Wellcome's Africa and Asia Programme communication practitioners.

This year it is proudly hosted by SANTHE and the Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI).

The overarching goals of the meeting are to:

1.    Develop the skills of Wellcome Trust's Africa and Asia Programme communications practitioners through learning from each other's experience and best-practice;
2.    Upskill through a 'masterclass' workshop/s led by an external expert;
3.    Continue to build a community of practice across the programmes;
4.    Build a culture of ongoing sharing and support .
