About Ecancer Choosing Wisely Africa Conference

The *Ecancer Choosing Wisely Africa Conference* is scheduled for February 2, 2024, in Kigali, Rwanda. This event, now in its fourth African edition, is a collaboration between Rwanda Cancer Relief and ecancer, in partnership with the Rwanda Biomedical Centre. The conference expects to welcome over 150 attendees from both local and international backgrounds.

This day-long conference will feature more than ten speakers from various cancer disciplines, focusing on the theme of Choosing Wisely in cancer care. The range of topics is comprehensive, encompassing radiation oncology, medical oncology, prevention, oncological surgery, palliative care, patient advocacy, pathology, radiology, clinical trials, research, and training.

The primary goal of the conference is to elevate awareness among oncology professionals about the importance of prudent practice in the context of limited resources, with an emphasis on maximizing patient benefits. The increasing burden of cancer in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs), particularly in Africa, highlights the urgent need to strengthen cancer care delivery systems.

Spanning a day, the conference is dedicated to encouraging discussions and interactions aimed at delivering optimal care at reduced costs. It aims to reduce financial strain on patients, families, and society at large while pursuing excellence in healthcare outcomes.
