Welcome remarks from RMA President

The Rwanda Medical Association (RMA) is pleased to announce and invite you to its 19th Annual Scientific Conference and General Assembly.

The RMA was founded in 1995 and is an umbrella body of medical doctors/physicians practicing in Rwanda as well as those working or training abroad. The Rwanda Medical Association is registered and officially recognized as a non-profit organization by the Rwanda Governance Board. Its mandate is to build a trusted and unified voice of doctors, promote medical professionalism (Ethics and Conduct) in Rwanda and advocate for the welfare of medical doctors.

Since its existence, RMA has been conducting successful Annual Scientific Conferences and General Assemblies and we do thank cordially all our partners for their continuous support. During each of the previous annual conferences, we have been delighted to welcome national and international experts from all corners of the world, to hear and share their experiences.

The year 2017 reserves a lot of particularities and our expectations are much higher as the RMA will be hosting its 19th Annual Scientific Conference and General Assembly. This highly interactive event will provide information and working sessions on the UHC, the challenges encountered and proposed innovative approaches to be adopted as Rwanda strives to achieve universal healthcare coverage. It will also provide an opportunity for advocacy where key stakeholders will be invited.

In addition to the scientific aspect of the conference, our esteemed delegates will get the opportunity to network with their peers and why not explore our beautiful country, getting to know its culture and history.

The 19thAnnual Scientific Conference and General Assembly will take place from 15-16 December 2017 at the Marriot Hotel Kigali.

We look forward to meeting you in Kigali.
