Message from ASFM President

It will be exactly twelve years after the African Network of Forensic Medicine (ANFM) in Windhoek, Namibia (2011) transmuted into the African Society of Forensic Medicine (ASFM) in Kampala, Uganda (2012), that African practitioners of forensic medicine and science, friends, partners, and other stakeholders from within Africa and the world will be gathering in the "land of a thousand hills", the beautiful country of Rwanda, for the 10th Annual International Forensic Conference of the Society tagged ASFM Kigali 2023. Rwanda will be hosting Africa Forensics for the first time, and we are excited about the prospect of the theme: Harmonization of Evidence-Based Forensic Science Practice in Africa—A Holistic Approach Towards a Safer Continent.
