African Community of Practice

ISQua has made a commitment to supporting a regional approach to its work, including specific targeted activities to strengthen engagement with professionals in lower and middle income countries.  The development of an Africa network reflects this commitment.    

The network first met and was established during the 33rd International Conference.  The group meets on a regular basis to exchange information and share learning about issues which are specific to Africa, bearing  in mind that the continent includes several sub-regions, including Southern, Eastern, Western and Northern Africa.

If you are interested in joining the network, please contact the ISQua Office info@isqua.org
