6th AfriNEAD conference

“Disability unplugged – Beyond conventions and charters: “what really matters to persons with disabilities in Africa.”

30th November – 3rd December 2020

Will be held in Cape Town


We are very excited that the University of Stellenbosch has really assisted us, by declaring 2020 the year of People with Disabilities, which they announced to the first year students this year. They have also awarded a Honoree degree to Rachel Kachaje, a disability activist, past member of the Malawian Government and a loyal and staunch supporter of AfriNEAD. Throughout the year there will be, lecture by people with disabilities as well as on disability related topics and also articles in the media and other media forms.

The African Network for Evidence -to- Action in Disability (AfriNEAD) will be 13 years in November of 2020 since its inauguration in 2007.   Each conference assist the network members to meet and address some areas of concern on disability research evidence, which through direct dialogue further strengthen the work of the network.
