Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) invites you to participate in the FIGO Regional Conference of Middle East and Africa scheduled to take place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 11 to 13 April 2018.

This regional conference organised together with African Federation of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (AFOG), the Emirates Medical Association (EMA) and the Federation of Arab Gynecology and Obstetrics Societies (FAGOS) will be held at the InterContinental Hotel Dubai Festival City - which offers excellent facilities for all delegates and is efficiently connected to other parts of the city and airport by public transport.

The scientific programme will focus on the issues faced by the obstetricians and gynaecologists in the region. It will cover cutting edge topics in daily practice, the most recent development and management of the rapidly evolving health care requirements, as well as the crucial challenges concerning low resource countries.

We hope to see you in Dubai in April 2018!

Professor CN Purandare

FIGO President
