The African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC) is an Africa-based organisation with members from throughout Africa and the international cancer community. Our objectives are to support, integrate, and facilitate evidence-based interventions and innovative programmes towards the prevention and control of cancer in Africa. One way in which AORTIC achieves this is by hosting its biennial cancer conferences in various African countries so as to raise awareness, build capacity, and create an impact in those regions. The AORTIC conference has become the definitive event on the African health calendar, enabling the exchange of ideas and the opportunity to meet oncology leaders from all over Africa, and from around the world.
To transform cancer control in Africa
through collaboration in education,
research, and the delivery of equitable
and timely interventions to minimise
the impact of cancer
Africa, a continent where all have
universal access to cancer care
AORTIC hosts biennial international cancer conferences in various African countries, providing a platform for innovative and interactive educational training across the full cancer-care continuum. Creating a space to forge partnerships, to network, and build capacity.
AORTIC supports Africa-based researchers in order to advance their research skills and development. We develop and support research to create new knowledge and drive innovation in cancer control.
AORTIC aims to develop the next generation of leaders in cancer care, research, education, and advocacy within Africa through our African Cancer Leadership Institute (ACLI).
AORTIC provides and facilitates cancer education and training for African cancer clinicians, researchers, advocates, survivors, policy makers, and students through the AORTIC Virtual Education and Training Programme.
