Invitation from the HELINA'96 Organising Committee Chairperson
 
Dear Colleague
 
HELINA  96, with the theme  "Informatics for Health in Africa", will
be the second IMIA working conference on health informatics on the
African continent.   The success of HELINA  93 provided the impetus
for this initiative.
 
On behalf of the Organising Committee and the hosts - the South
African Medical Research Council, the South African Department of Health,
 the South  African Medical Informatics Group and the
World Health Organisation (as co-sponsor) - I wish to extend a warm invitation
to you to attend the HELINA  96 Conference as well as the Autumn School
which will precede it.
 
Over 100 abstracts have been  accepted, including approximately 40% from
South Africa, 40% from the rest of  Africa and the  balance from countries all
over the world. We hope to attract at  least 300 participants and are seeking
sponsorship to enable as many African delegates as possible to attend.
 
We believe that this conference will make a considerable contribution
to the health of the peoples of Africa and further afield, and will afford an
excellent opportunity to meet colleagues active in this field.
 
I look forward to welcoming you to HELINA  96.
 
Yours sincerely
Dr JA Louw
Chairperson HELINA  96 Organising Committee
____________________________________________________
Exhibition Programme
 
This meeting is a unique occasion which brings together international,
regional and local health care professionals, policy makers, health
researchers and   African health informatics specialists.
This forum provides the opportunity for specialist  companies and organisations
to demonstrate their products and reinforce their role in the Health
Information Systems marketplace.
 
The Organising Committee has planned for tea breaks, poster mounting
and the Welcome function to occur in the same vicinity as the exhibitions.
The objective is to ensure that the maximum output for exhibitors is achieved.
 
The following Patrons have pledged their support for the event:
DELOITTE & TOUCHE
DENEL/IBM/INTERSOLVE
ICL
MEDITECH
SPL
UNISYS
 
A detailed floorplan, with the features available to exhibitors, and rules of Eskom
Conference and Exhibition Centre,  will be made available to individual exhibitors.
For more information on the options available, exhibitors are kindly
requested to contact the Conference Secretariat.
 
Conference Languages
 
The official languages for the conference will be English and French.
 The opening, first plenary session, closing session, final programme and
book of abstracts, will be translated into both languages.  Some provision will
be made for verbal translation of enquiries into Arabic and Portuguese.
 
Name Tags
 
Delegates are requested to wear the conference name tag throughout the
conference.
 
Poster Mounting
 
Presenters of posters should arrange to mount their posters during the early
registration session on Sunday 14 April 1996.  Posters must be mounted in the

Autumn School
A comprehensive introduction to health informatics will be given on
Friday 12 April and Saturday 13 April.  There will be two full days of
lectures by  leading health informaticians from South Africa and from abroad.
The course will enable participants to  learn about all aspects of health
informatics   beginning with the relationship of health  care delivery systems
to information systems for management and planning, through managing
health information systems, to more specialised topics such as coding and
classification.  Subject to demand, two additional workshops will also be run
on Saturday 13 April.  The  workshop topics are geographic information systems
and how to develop and maintain an internet service.  The emphasis in the
workshops and lectures will be on what is appropriate for conditions in Africa.
