Message from AfPIF Secretariat about AfPIF 2024 in Kinshasa

Dear AfPIF community,

Following the recent security incident on 19 May 2024, we have consulted with trusted sources and partners and conducted an internal assessment of the situation in Kinshasa. We have received assurances from our host and local authorities on the stability, safety, and security in Kinshasa for our event.

Our planning for the AfPIF 2024 event continues earnestly, and we look forward to hosting you in Kinshasa this August. The safety of our participants is of great importance to us, and we will take all necessary measures to promote a successful and safe event. To this end, we will coordinate with the local host to enhance the level of security provided.

In the meantime, we’d like to invite you to submit your presentation abstract and finalize your travel arrangements by registering for the event and booking using the details provided on the Venue and Accommodation page. We also encourage all participants to stay informed on local travel information and advisories while planning travel arrangements.

Further, if you wish to sponsor AfPIF, please contact Sally Harvey. We also want to remind you that the call for hosting AfPIF 2025 is still open. What’s your favorite city for AfPIF 2025? Let us know using the #afpif2024 hashtag.

Should you have any questions or clarification, please reach out to
