Africa Spinal Cord Injury Network conference- getting rural rehab and peer supporters there!

Personal message

Get two therapists and a peer supporter to the Africa Spinal Cord Injury Network conference in Lusaka 1-3 November 2018! 

The AFSCIN conference is held every two years and focuses on the current status and management of spinal cord injuries in Africa, practical ideas on application of best practice in low resource settings, and the building of a network of health care workers and consumers all over Africa. The focus this year in Lusaka is on peer support. 

Manguzi rehab team has a long history of advocacy and in pioneering community rehabilitation services. Longstanding Manguzi rural therapists (physio and OT) would like to attend the conference together with their peer supporter- who has never traveled out of South Africa, been on a plane or met other peer supporters. Assistance with funds to cover air travel and very basic accommodation required, as Lusaka is a 3.5 day road trip from Manguzi. 

The three attendees are: Maryke Bezuidenhout (the physio), Jabulile Ndlovu (the occupational therapist)  and Moses Mthembu (the peer supporter). 

The conference will strengthen existing spinal rehab and peer support services in rural Manguzi and South Africa through knowledge and networking. Information will be shared through RuReSA (Rural Rehab South Africa) platforms.
