The Rural Health Conference is an annual event, held in August, organised by the Rural Doctors of Southern Africa Association (RuDASA), Rural Rehab SA (RuReSA), the Professional Association for Clinical Associates in South Africa (PACASA ) and the Rural Nursing South Africa (RuNurSA). Click for more about the conference and the partners .The venue rotates between the provinces making it easier for those living and working in remote rural areas in that province to attend. These delegates may be working in rural areas, or from universities and NGOs working in health.

We would like to invite your organisation to participate in the Rural Health Conference 2024 to be held Mpumalanga, at the Olifants River Lodge from 1-3 August 2024.
