We are thrilled to announce the presence of AFIDEP’s Executive Director, Dr Eliya Zulu, at the upcoming Global Congress on Population, Health, and Development (PHDC’23) from 5 to 8 September. Egypt’s Ministry of Health and Population organised the Congress under the patronage and presence of H.E. Mr. Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, President of Egypt.
The world is witnessing many demographic, social and economic shifts that impact health and pose significant challenges to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and ensuring health and well-being for all. With a projected global population increase to 9.7 billion by 2050 and more than half of this increase from eight countries, including Egypt, the world is facing a challenge that requires high-level global collaboration and integration of actions.
One of the standout voices at this historic gathering will be Dr Eliya Zulu, a renowned expert in population studies, health, and development. Dr Zulu’s work has left an indelible mark on these fields, and his participation in this Congress is a testament to the calibre of expertise that will be present. As a leading expert in these fields, Dr Zulu is a guest speaker in the “The Demographic Dividend: Economic Impacts and Opportunities” session on Wednesday, 6 September 2023.
Dr Eliya Zulu will share his invaluable insights on how demographic trends influence global development and explore the dynamic inter-dependability between population, health and development. His expertise spans the entire spectrum, from the implications of changing population structures on healthcare systems to the impact of population growth on sustainable development goals.
Dr Zulu’s dedication to finding solutions that promote healthier and more equitable societies has earned him international acclaim, making him an ideal guest speaker and participant for this global event.
Join us at the Global Congress on Population, Health, and Development as we embark on a journey towards a more sustainable, inclusive, and prosperous future for all. The Congress promises to be a momentous occasion to exchange ideas, forge collaborations, and discover solutions to improve people’s well-being worldwide.
