Invitation

We are excited to invite you to the 3rd Southern African Multidisciplinary ADHD Congress, which aims to bring together psychiatrists, paediatricians, general practitioners, psychologists, and occupational therapists – the whole team involved with the optimal management of ADHD across the lifespan.

It is estimated that ten to twenty percent of children and adolescents experience mental health problems worldwide, while in Sub-Saharan Africa, epidemiological studies indicated that 40.8% of adolescents struggles with emotional and behavioural problems. International studies estimate the prevalence of ADHD as five percent of school-aged children, with 65% of patients having symptoms that persist into adulthood. However, it is possible that the prevalence rates in Southern Africa may be higher. Furthermore, access to care remains a challenge, and care delivery – in both the public and private sector – remains fragmented.

Through a strong partnership, state of the art IT infrastructure and support from the University of Stellenbosch Business School, this will again be a live and interactive virtual event. On registration, delegates will receive detailed log in instructions for the event. You will also receive details for downloading the congress app where you will be able to find all the relevant information about the programme, speakers, and sponsors.

Last year’s 2nd congress was attended by more than 300 delegates representing seven countries. We hope that you will participate in this year’s event and are looking forward to welcoming you to the 3rd Southern Africa Multidisciplinary ADHD Congress.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information or assistance.
