Welcome to the African Society of Human Genetics (AfSHG)

The African Society of Human Genetics is a forum for scientists interested in Human Genetics in Africa to meet, interact, network and collaborate. The Society's aim is to equip the African scientific community and policymakers with the information and practical knowledge they need to contribute to the field of genetics research and to attract global attention to the efforts of African scientists.

A major goal of the society is the organization of a series of annual workshops and meetings in various parts of Africa.

Our next meeting will be held in Dakar in Senegal from May 15-17th 2016. The theme will be 'Strengthening Human Genetics Research in Africa'. This meeting will be attended by many people and as in previous years, will be an excellent learning and networking opportunity for our members and visitors alike. More details about the meeting are available here.
