The third annual NISA conference was held in Abuja Nigeria in September of 2017 and focused on improving health through implementation science and research. The conference was well attend by close to 200 participants which represented over 40 different organizations, and executives from top all the agencies not only attended but also participated in a discussion panel. There were over 60 abstracts accepted for poster and/or oral presentation! NISA 2017 to say the least was a huge success and we are excited about what is lined up for 2018! The manuscript is currently being drafted and will be submitted soon!
