On behalf of the Scientific Committee of the SIOP AFRICA 2022, I welcome you warmly to Kampala, Uganda on March 16-18, 2022, for the 14th SIOP AFRICA conference. We have put together a scientific program to suit everyone, be it patients, parents, nurses, doctors or anyone that cares about children with cancer in Africa.
Childhood cancer care in Africa, especially during the Covid19 pandemic, faces many challenges which need tailor-made innovative solutions, hence the timely theme, “INNOVATE FOR AFRICA”. These innovations should improve access to diagnosis, treatment, supportive and palliative care for children with cancer and ensure the gains made are not lost.
We have invited passionate childhood cancer specialists, parents, patients and activists that will make your attendance worthwhile and the scientific committee has received high quality abstracts that describe the different facets of cancer care experiences in Africa.
You do not want to miss this and I therefore request you to register for the 3 days of deliberations that will certainly leave us better equipped to uplift children with cancer in Africa.
Dr Barnabas Atwiine
Paediatric Oncologist, Uganda.
