The National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL), in collaboration with her partners, including AFENET, successfully hosted the 3rd Emmet A.

The theme of the conference was “Maintaining Public Health during a Pandemic.” The first and second editions of the conference were held in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
