This tracking will give AFEM a better sense of how the handbook is making its way around Africa and beyond and help us target interventions and training for the future.

“Since its inception (of which I am proud to have been directly involved), AFEM has shown enormous support towards my endeavors in developing my skills in Emergency Medicine. Coming from a work setting with low resources, the Federation has given me excellent opportunities to learn and share my experiences through these conferences, such as the one recently held in Addis Ababa." -AfCEM2014 sponsored delegate (Kenya)
