AORTIC 2015 10th International Conference on Cancer in Africa

November 18, 2015 - November 22, 2015

The African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC) is pleased to announce its 10th International Conference on Cancer in Africa: AORTIC 2015. It will take place in Marrakech, Morocco from 18 – 22 November 2015 at the Palais des Congrès de Marrakech.

AORTIC conferences are held every two years and provide a unique platform where leading African and international health care professionals in cancer care, advocates, leaders in Government, and various members of the international health industry and global cancer community meet to discuss cancer-related matters and proffer solutions that can significantly reduce the impact of cancer in Africa and around the world.

AORTIC 2013 was held in Durban, South Africa in November 2013. Two days of pre-conference workshops preceded the three-day conference that saw 974 delegates from 70 countries come together under the theme “Cancer in Africa: Bridging Science and Humanity”.

Following the remarkably successful conference in 2013, AORTIC 2015 expects to welcome more than 1000 participants from all over the world to engage with the theme “Roadmap to Cancer Control in Africa” and a programme developed by an internationally-representative Scientific Programme Committee covering a diverse range of topics related to cancer control in Africa.

With the support of the Lalla Salma Foundation for Cancer Prevention and Treatment, the multidisciplinary five-day AORTIC 2015 conference will feature interactive workshops, industry symposia, keynote addresses, plenary sessions, breakfast sessions and free communication of abstracts, as well as a social programme to enhance participant interaction. All cancer-related professions will be present, providing a unique mix of expertise, as we aim to equip attendees with diverse tools that can be implemented in resourceful ways.

To make a difference, AORTIC invites you, as a committed member of the international cancer control community, to contribute to and listen to world-renowned speakers, to network with colleagues and professionals from all over the world, and to be exposed to the latest research findings in the cancer arena. Our carefully packaged programme offers you a unique opportunity to change the trajectory of cancer in Africa and the rest of the world.

We look forward to welcoming you to Marrakech, Morocco in November 2015.
