Message From Our President
I am very delighted and feel very honoured to be elected the President of the Union of National African Paediatric Societies and Associations (UNAPSA) for the next three years (2014 -2017).

The human resource for health within the African region is known to be generally inadequate, and there is underutilisation and inappropriate application of available resources.
