Dear Colleagues and Members of the Trade,
We welcome you to the ESMO Africa Summit 2019. This will be held at the Century City Conference centre from 15-17th February 2019.
The 2019 summit will be co-chaired by Andres Cervantes representing the European Oncology community, and Georgia Demetriou, Hannah Simonds and Daniel Vorobiof as the local representatives.
The summit will commence with three workshops for invited participants. The focus will be on breast cancer, palliative care and prostate cancer. The workshops will review current ESMO guidelines and discuss the solutions to instituting these in Africa where there is varying access to healthcare.
The three day main meeting will consist of high quality presentations from leading experts from Europe and Africa covering the latest guidelines and management issues in breast, lung, gastrointestinal, sarcoma, haematological and non-prostate urological malignancies. Case presentations by young oncologists will provide opportunities for debate and discussion.
We welcome trade and industry’s ongoing support for this important academic event.
We look forward to seeing many colleagues from Africa and Europe gathering for this exciting summit, we welcome you all to Cape Town.
Georgia, Hannah and Daniel
