Dear PAMCA colleague, partner & friend,
You will be aware that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has now affected nearly every country across the globe. At PAMCA we have been closely monitoring the situation to make an informed decision about whether to go on with the 7th Annual Conference and Exhibition.
After careful deliberation with PAMCA’s Board of Directors, Local Organising Committee colleagues and partners, we have taken the decision to postpone the conference initially planned to take place on 21-23rd September 2020 in Accra, Ghana.
We have agreed that the Annual Conference & Exhibition will now take place in 2021; and we will communicate the precise dates in the coming months. This postponement also applies to all pre-conference workshops that were scheduled to take place this year.
We understand that some of you will have submitted abstracts via our online portal. You will have the possibility to revise the submitted abstracts via our website for next year’s conference. If you have any further questions, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
After a successful conference last year in Yaoundé, we know that many of you will have been hoping to join us this year in Accra, but we felt that current events and the pressure that venues, organisations and countries are under, meant the event would not be viable this year. Your health and wellbeing is also of paramount importance to us.
We are closely monitoring the situation, and will be in touch again in the coming months for updates. Wishing you, your family, friends, and organisations our best wishes at this challenging time.
Dr. Prosper Chaki, Prof. Charles M. Mbogo,
Executive Director, PAMCA, President, PAMCA Board of Directors,
