About VCON 2021

Annual Volunteer’s Congress VCON is a national summit of office bearers and volunteers working under the umbrella of VFAHT for the reduction of the burden of Infectious diseases from Pakistan. Volunteers from all the local councils at various medical and dental institutes across the country get together to partake in different interactive activities, designed to stir the creative minds and yield ideas for the next year.

VCON is a golden learning opportunity for volunteers to interact with each other and engage in intellectually stimulating conversations. The event also includes various training sessions aimed at capacity building of the volunteers to hone their skills and help them become valuable members of the healthcare community.


We bring to you a series of interactive public health workshops under experienced trainers. If you’re looking for a chance to learn tips and tricks of effective communication and burnout management or learning the know-how’s of organizing health camps, don’t miss this opportunity and register for our workshops! Join us on June 25 and 26 to refine your leadership skills and learn about much more!

Public Health Quiz

It will make the wheels turn in your brain about infectious diseases. The Quiz has 3 rounds and includes many subtopics on prevalent infectious diseases like COVID-19, Hepatitis, TB, and Dengue. Register as a team and get a chance to test your skills.

Volunteers Networking

Keeping in mind what Bejamin Franklin said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn”, the Volunteers networking session is an opportunity for Volunteers to partake in activities in a fun and friendly environment. This is planned to encourage interaction and engagement between volunteers and establish the basis of teamwork and coordination.
