Invitation to attend the 24th annual conference


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are now making our final preparations to conduct the 24th Annual Conference of the Ethiopian Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ESOG) colorfully at Hilton Addis Hotel in Addis Ababa, from Monday February 15- Wednesday 17, 2016.

This year’s annual conference is organized to be memorable and one of the best in its kind as we have finished our last laps of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and reorganizing our efforts to the challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

There will be a panel discussion on: From MDGs to SDGs- Re-invigorating the Roles of ESOG. Distinguished panelists will speak on the unfinished agenda of MDG5, the role of ESOG and overview of SDGs.

Two Pre-Congress parallel Continuing Medical Education (CMEs) and one post-conference CME is also organized. There will be 16 papers to be presented in the scientific secession.

The usual social event of cocktail dinner will give you an opportunity to network with your colleagues and partners working in Reproductive Health (RH) sector in Ethiopia and abroad.

Please come and join us and be enriched by the science and friendship that the ESOG Annual Conference has to offer. I believe this experience will re-energize you to provide the best to the women and newborns under your care.


With my sincere regards,
