IMPORTANT NOTICE: 9th Africa Nutrition Conference (ANEC IX) is cancelled

Dear Partners,

We regret to inform you that the 9TH AFRICA NUTRITION CONFERENCE (ANEC IX) scheduled for August 10-14 in Lusaka Zambia, has been CANCELLED due to the global Corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic. For the organizers, this was a very difficult decision in many aspects, but at the end of the day, this action was unavoidable.

The Conference organizers have decided to postpone the conference to a later date in 2022 to give enough time to prepare post the coronavirus pandemic. The Nutrition Association of Zambia (NAZ) retains the hosting rights.

However, the conference organizers considered inviting some of the keynote speakers, and conference delegates to do a series of presentations as webinars, based on the conference theme. Details of these and the specific date in 2022 will be made available on the website soon.

The Conference organizers will be meeting in the coming months to review the proposed schedule of events and make decisions on a range of items including speaker invitations, abstract submission and other logistics. As the program develops, we will announce these.
For those of you who have already submitted abstracts, you will be contacted with additional information regarding the status of the submitted abstracts and options for the Webinar.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by emails: anc2020[at] , nazsecretariat[at] and copy the webmaster[at]

The ANC2020 (ANEC IX) organizing team.
