AidEx Africa

Now in it's fourth year, AidEx Africa is a two-day high-profile conference which takes place annually in Nairobi, Kenya. AidEx Africa was developed as a satellite event to the already well-established AidEx conference and exhibition for humanitarian and development aid, held each year in Brussels.

AidEx Africa attracts over 300 delegates from the Government of Kenya, UN agencies, Kenyan Red Cross and leading NGOs from Africa and beyond.

Mr Thierry Meyrat, a Swiss national born in 1955, holds a Master of Arts from the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland). Mr. Meyrat joined the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in 1982. He worked as a delegate in the field of protection and then as a Head of Delegation in the following countries: Islamic Republic of Iran, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Thailand, Pakistan, Uganda, Rumania, Former Yugoslavia, the Russian Federation, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Nepal and the People’s Republic of China.

As from May 2014, Mr Meyrat is Head of the Regional Delegation of the ICRC in Nairobi, which covers Kenya, Tanzania and Djibouti.

The regional delegation, established in 1973, is home to the second-largest ICRC logistics facility in the world. Currently it is facilitating operations in South Sudan, Somalia and the Great Lakes region.

The regional delegation conducts as well activities in the field of detention and reestablishment of family links. The delegation provides training on international humanitarian law (IHL) to the armed forces in the region. Each year, events are held to help increase the study of IHL and to encourage research within academic circles. The delegation also works with the police, giving training on human rights and professional policing concepts to ensure these rights are upheld in the course of their work. The delegation works closely with Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS), Tanzania Red Cross Society (TRCS) and the Red Crescent Society of Djibouti (RCSD), delivering emergency assistance, restoring family links, promoting IHL and preparing for and responding to emergencies.
