CANCER IN AFRICA: APPROACHES, COLLABORATIONS, IMPACT

TAKE A LOOK AT THE PROGRAMME FOR AORTIC 2021 VIRTUAL

Since 1983, AORTIC conferences have provided a platform for innovative and interactive educational training across the full cancer-care continuum. An AORTIC conference creates space to forge partnerships, to network, and to build capacity. Our support for research creates new knowledge and drives innovation in cancer control.

All times are in South Africa Standard Time (SAST). The zone is two hours ahead of UTC/GMT (UTC/GMT +02:00) and is the same as Central Africa Time.
