SIOP 2017 Africa Congress Banner


Dear colleagues and friends,
It is with pleasure that we invite you to take part in the 12th Continental Meeting of the International Society of Pediatric Oncology (SIOP) in Africa and the 4th Childhood Cancer International Africa Regional Conference, organized by the Moroccan Society of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology (SMHOP), 5-8 April, 2017 in Marrakech, Morocco.

This meeting presents a tremendous opportunity for the Paediatric Oncology community, to meet, share their experiences and discuss the issues facing access to care in Africa.

The program will cover broad aspects of Paediatric Oncology care in African countries, with plenary sessions dedicated to the most frequent paediatric cancers in Africa. The program also includes parents and nurses sessions, poster sessions, and the meeting will end with an international course on paediatric brain tumours, the Wilkins-Barrick Society for Neuro-Oncology International Outreach Course.

The Moroccan Society of Hematology and Pediatric Oncology, host of this event, considers that, improving quality of care in Africa and lobbying for equal access for all African children suffering from cancer, are of essential importance Thus we would like to offer a tribune to all activists to make sure their voice is heard and to speak up about issues and obstacles to achieving universal access for African children.

We would like to invite all healthcare professionals, parents, survivors and volunteers involved in the field of paediatric oncology to join us at the upcoming congress and contribute to its success. Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet, share and learn together, so make plans to join us in the beautiful city of Marrakesh, the “Red City”, brimming with markets, gardens, palaces, and mosques. For a conference that we are sure will leave its mark in the passage of Paediatric Oncology in Africa.

We would like to inform you that the deadline for abstract and scolarship submission have been extended to 21 December 2016. The online registration platform will open shortly.
