Welcome to the 3rd Uganda Conference on Cancer and Palliative Care

It is our great pleasure to warmly invite you to the 3rd Uganda Conference on Cancer and Palliative Care. The conference is a joint collaboration between the Uganda Cancer Institute (UCI) and the Palliative Care Association of Uganda (PCAU).

The conference will be held on 23rd -24th September, 2021. It will be Online.

The theme for the conference is “Cancer and Palliative Care during COVID-19 and other challenging situations”. 

This two-day conference is designed to provide and share the latest information and developments on cancer and palliative care to all the scientists, academicians, researchers and students who are involved in cancer and palliative care. This conference will also highlight numerous scientific discoveries and major milestones in cancer and palliative care.

We are confident that you will enjoy a motivating conference here in Uganda and your presence and participation will help contribute to this vibrancy and enrich discussions around the theme.

We’re looking forward to an excellent conference with great scientists from different countries around the world and sharing new and exciting results based on the different sub themes.

Satelite Facilities

With the 3rd Uganda Conference on Cancer and Palliative Care going virtual, the ability to deliver conference proceedings to all delegates around the country is one of the things the organizing committee is looking at seriously.

Palliative Care and Cancer care providers are scattered across the country and due to the current surge of COVID-19, these cannot make it to attend in person as earlier planned. In addition, there is an increased demand of services in the different hospitals all over the country.

Therefore, to enable these providers and Palliative Care champions to participate in the conference, the committee agreed to establish satellite facilities in the different regions of Uganda including the Western Region, Northern Region, Central Region and Eastern Region.

We are very optimistic that this will enable people to be part of the 2days conference and avoid incidents of poor connectivity and issues with technology as well as enable delegates share lessons learned among themselves.

Contact the conference secretariat to know more about how you can attend or support a health worker to attend the conference at a satellite facility.
