Invitation

Dear Friends and Colleagues

On behalf of the South African Urological Association (SAUA) under the auspices of the University of Pretoria and Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University, it is our honour to invite you to the 34th Biennial Congress of the South African Urological Association. This will be held in proud association with the 16th Pan African Urological Association (PAUSA) congress and will be the 1st joint meeting of our affiliated societies which promises to make it a superb event incorporating the totality of African Urological practitioners!

The event will be held at the beautiful and prolific Indaba Hotel & Conference Centre in Johannesburg, Gauteng South Africa, from Wednesday 11 to Sunday 15 September 2024.

It will be our pleasure to host you both scientifically and socially to celebrate the advancement of urology in Afica and beyond.

We have invited exceptional international speakers and encourage all African Urologists to participate in great numbers since we have such talent, expertise and knowledge amongst ourselves.

This conference will undoubtedly promote the progress in urology within Africa but also develop more collaboration with international colleagues across the globe.

The carefully designed scientific programme will incorporate plenary sessions, semi live surgery sessions, panel discussion and abstract presentations in all major aspects of African Urology.

The programme includes a number of pre-congress problem solving masterclasses as well as social excursions including optional sojourns to the wonders of Cape Town and the Western Cape.

Urological nursing and affiliated specialties are included in both the main plenaries as well as a dedicated programme with the members of the South African Urology Nurses Association (SAUNA).

Come and enjoy the best of African Urology and allow yourself to surrender to the invigorating South African hospitality.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Prof Shingai Mutambirwa (SAUA)                    Dr Mohamed Jalloh (PAUSA)
