This was the first time in the history of the African championships that the male and female editions were organized in two different countries at different times. While men and women competitions were traditionally gathered in the same installations every two years in January, The African Handball Confederation (CAHB) had decided to separate the two competitions after several votes at a meeting on 23 January 2015 at the Abbasside Palace hotel in Algiers.
