The African Society of Human Genetics is a forum for scientists interested in Human Genetics in Africa to meet, interact, network and collaborate. The Society's aim is to equip the African scientific community and policymakers with the information and practical knowledge they need to contribute to the field of genetics research and to attract global attention to the efforts of African scientists.
A major goal of the society is the organization of a series of annual workshops and meetings in various parts of Africa. The next African Society for Human Genetics (AfSHG) Conference will take place in Cairo, Egypt, from 16-18 November, 2017. Young Researcher Forum is planned for the 15th November.
