4 Key Participants

The biennial AORTIC International Conference on Cancer in Africa is hosted by the African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC). The 2017 conference will take place from 7 to 10 November 2017 in Kigali, Rwanda. AORTIC is a pan-African, bilingual, multi-disciplinary organisation dedicated to the promotion of cancer care and control in Africa.

AORTIC’s key objectives are to further research relating to cancers prevalent in Africa and to facilitate and support training initiatives in oncology for health-care workers. Their research and training covers an array of issues related to cancer control in Africa such as:

  • National Cancer Control Programmes

AORTIC strives to unite the African continent in achieving its goal of a cancer-free Africa and seeks to make a positive impact throughout the region through collaboration with health ministries and global cancer organisations.
