Incoming SIOP President

Message from Incoming SIOP President.

Dear colleagues,

It is a great honor for me as SIOP President Elect to join you in this celebration of excellence and hard work that is the SIOP Africa congress held in Uganda.

SIOP Africa is leading the way in quick progress in survival, adapting therapies to local resources, addressing specific regional needs and adapting innovations which can make pediatric oncology change as it has done in the past with avoiding radiotherapy for Hodgkin’s lymphomas for example. 

The scientific program of the 2022 SIOP Africa congress is really exciting and thought-provoking, full of exciting innovations, report of experiences and good science.

I will closely follow the advances from the distance due to COVID restrictions, only wishing to shake hands in the upcoming congress.
