    CTICC to host the first World Congress of Nephrology in Africa

    The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) will welcome approximately 3 000 medical specialists attending the World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) from 13 – 16 March 2015.



    Nephrology care remains critically low in Sub-Saharan Africa with the exception of Kenya, South Africa, Sudan and Nigeria. The congress will focus on renal health care issues relevant to Africa, helping mobilise the advancement of renal care in African regions where resources are scarce.

    “We are honoured to be hosting the first World Congress of Nephrology in Africa, providing an essential platform to disseminate information among key role players and empower communities to where it is needed most in order to strengthen nephrology care on the continent”, adds Julie-May Ellingson, CTICC Chief Executive Officer.

    The commitment of the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) to the global advancement of nephrology is recognised in the scientific program, which includes topics addressing practical, social and economic challenges across varied nations. The delegates attending from all over the world will stimulate the congress theme of diversity, giving understanding to worldwide nephrology concerns and solutions.

    Cape Town is renowned for its medical and scientific fraternities, which is an appealing value proposition for international conferences such as the WCN. “These conferences remain one of the pivotal drivers of the knowledge economy, which contribute to knowledge exchange and skills transfer in key sectors”, concludes Ellingson.

    The WCN is the first international association conference for yet another bumper conference year at the CTICC. Some of the international events highlights on the cards for 2015 include the World Congress of the International Federation of Aesthetic Dentistry 2015 and the 46th Union World Conference on Lung Health 2015 which is expected to attract 1500 and 2500 delegates respectively.
