WONCA was formed as an association of academies, with many early member organisations engaged in academic development of general practitioners and the discipline. Over time there have been many academic departments of family medicine created. Primafamed and WONCA Africa have been symbiotic in their development in Africa. It was agreed in April 2020 that Primafamed would be the official academic organisation of WONCA Africa. Since the agreement  with Primafamed it was agreed that all coordination of academic activities will be managed by Primafamed, with close links to the WONCA Working Partiesn on Education and Research. See more about Primafamed.
 
There are many academic activities that will be shared over time. See some that WONCA Africa has attempted in the last two years. PhD Forum and Academic Development
