Message from the chairman

Senegal is particularly proud to host the 41st International Congress of the West African College of Physicians.
This gives our country the distinct honor to welcome, through the Senegalese section of the College, the African, European and American Medical Community for exchanges which, we have no doubt, will enable us to take a look at the major health issues facing our countries.

This Congress offers general practitioners, specialists and all components of the health care system an opportunity to exchange views on current topics while promoting continuing medical education.

The West African College of Physicians brings together all the medical specialties of the ECOWAS region and remains the main tool of health integration in our subregion.

The theme selected, i.e. "Africa facing the double burden of non-communicable diseases and communicable diseases", as well as the diversity of subjects dealt with, should enable fruitful multidisciplinary exchanges for the benefit of our sub-region and the scientific community at large.

The Senegalese section of the West African College of Physicians is very sensitive to the mark of confidence of the College’s board which enabled them to organize this important event. The Senegalese section would like to thank all the foreign colleagues who travelled to Dakar. They pay tribute to the pioneers of the College who helped our large sub-regional organization play its role of bringing together the various players in the health sector while facilitating the harmonization of our practices.

This Congress was made possible thanks to the support of authorities of the Republic of Senegal, first and foremost His Excellency the President of the Republic, who spared no effort for the success of this important scientific event. Please allow us to pay them a vibrant tribute.
We would also like to thank all our partners for their unwavering support.

We wish our work every success and hope that friends from abroad will have an excellent stay in Senegal.
