Welcome to ACHIEVE Conference – JULY 2023.

On behalf of the Steering and Local Organising Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to this epoch-making two-day conference on Novel Strategies for Accelerating Hypertension Control in Africa with the theme ‘African Control of Hypertension through Innovative Epidemiology and a Vibrant Ecosystem’ (ACHIEVE). This meeting which will take place in Ibadan, Nigeria, the city of many firsts, is organized by the Center for Genomics and Precision Medicine and African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA), University of Ibadan Centre of Excellence in Non-Communicable Diseases in partnership with World Hypertension League (WHL) and Resolve to Save Lives (RTSL).

Ibadan is the largest city in Sub-Sahara West Africa. It is the largest city in terms of geographical mass. Ibadan the current capital of Oyo state, with its historical significance in the affairs of the Old Oyo Empire, is naturally endowed with a lot of places to see. Ibadan holds a long list of firsts in Nigeria’s history and indeed in Africa as a whole. It is the home of the first television in Africa (NTA Ibadan), first Nigerian University (University of Ibadan, U.I), first University Teaching Hospital in Nigeria (University College hospital, UCH), first Sports Stadium in Africa (Liberty House) and first city to produce a club side that won international trophy for Nigeria, i.e. African Cup Winner’s Cup in 1976 (IICC shooting Stars Football Club of Ibadan, now 3SC). This city of firsts has also produced great men and women, who have contributed to the socio-economic development of the city and Nigeria in general that are too numerous to mention. The city is accommodating and very peaceful to work and live in. With friendly and accommodating indigenes, the economic buoyancy of the city is irresistible for all kinds of business, ranging from oil to gas, telecommunications, food and beverage, fabrics and real estate, etc. 

The program for the ACHIEVE conference 2023 will feature the latest topics in hypertension and cardiovascular disease and is being prepared for all professionals, researchers and policy makers across the continuum of care.  The structure of the program will feature plenary sessions each day that focuses on the theme. There will be presentations on the key ACHIEVE recommendations from international experts and sufficient sessions for discussions and facilitate discussion, learning and networking opportunities with opportunities for early career professionals and trainees.

The Steering Committee looks forward to welcoming and hosting you in July 2023 for the ACHIEVE Conference.
