For over 40 years, International Health Care Foundation/African Christian Hospitals has hosted a medical missions seminar to bring together healthcare and missions teams from around the world to discuss ideas, opportunities, experiences and lessons learned on the field.

the seminar will provide new perspectives, training, ideas, and great networking opportunities.
