You are invited to the African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer’s 11th International Conference on Cancer in Africa. The theme this year is “Cancer in Africa: Making Strides, Creating Solutions” and our collective objectives are to advance research relating to cancers prevalent in Africa, and to support oncology training initiatives for healthcare workers.

The African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC) is an Africa-based non-profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of cancer control and palliation in Africa. We strive to unite the African continent in achieving its goal of a cancer-free Africa, and we seek to make a positive impact across the region through collaboration with health ministries and global cancer organisations.

The biennial AORTIC conference is a unique platform that brings together leading African and international healthcare professionals, advocates, government leaders and other active members of the global cancer community.

AORTIC 2017 will be held in Kigali, Rwanda. The city has a new convention centre, many convenient hotel rooms nearby, and has invested in infrastructure which contributes to getting to and around Rwanda with ease.

The educational programme will be AORTIC’s most innovative and interactive programme to date, addressing issues across the cancer-care continuum. Designed to spark collaboration and generate spaces for sharing experiences, the 2017 programme will ask the difficult questions, share real case studies and create solutions. Conference participants will benefit from scientific exchange during the formal programme, as well as informal interactions with colleagues from varied backgrounds and more than 66 countries.

We would be delighted if you would SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT to present at this year’s conference and ask you to please refer to our conference website for guidelines and specifications. There are also a limited number of BURSARIES available.
