THE 17th ICMDA WORLD CONGRESS
Serving with Love in a Hurting World
The International Christian Medical & Dental Association brings together over 80 national movements of Christians working in healthcare. Every four years we hold a World Congress where we invite all national medical societies and their members to come together for a week of fellowship, teaching and to provide an environment for the exchange of views particularly where these concern Christian faith and ethics.
The congress is an incredible opportunity to:
- Meet fellow Christian doctors and dentists
- Share fellowship
- Build international links
- Join together in prayer, worship and Bible study
- Discuss global health and social issues
- Receive world class teaching
The Arusha World Congress is the 17th such event and the second to be held in Africa. It is being organised jointly by fellowships in the ICMDA East Africa region, including Image Doctors Tanzania, CMF Kenya, CMF Uganda, CMDA South Sudan and CMDF Ethiopia.
The main congress runs from 22-25 June 2023 and will be held at the Arusha International Conference Centre (AICC). This will be preceded by a Student Conference from 20-22 June 2023, in the same venue, and various Pre-Conference Streams on topics such as Saline Process, Bioethics, Family Medicine, PRIME and Advocacy.
