Call for Paper
Education and STI (science, technology and innovation) drive development. How well developing countries in Africa appropriate education and STI to improve the wellbeing of their citizenry and to satisfy human wants and aspirations is an issue to confer on, especially for a continent with very sluggish general rate of development. World Health Organisation (2015) life expectancy statistics for 2013 for 222 countries in the world show that topmost African countries were Algeria (60th position, with 75.6 years),
Mauritius (77th, with 74.6 years) and Morocco (83rd, with 74.3 years). African countries occupy the lowest rungs from 181st position (Mauritania, 60.4 years) to the last (Angola, 38.2 years).The performance of African countries is far below global average of 71 years for 2010-2013. Life expectancy is average number of years a person is expected to live if mortality rate remained constant, and it reflects the quality of healthcare ICESTIDA 2018 will gather about 300 scholars and development practitioners
