AORTIC Members


The African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC) is an Africa-based organisation with members from throughout Africa and the international cancer community. Our objectives are to support, integrate, and facilitate evidence-based interventions and innovative programmes towards the prevention and control of cancer in Africa. One way in which AORTIC achieves this is by hosting its biennial cancer conferences in various African countries so as to raise awareness, build capacity, and create an impact in those regions. The AORTIC conference has become the definitive event on the African health calendar, enabling the exchange of ideas and the opportunity to meet oncology leaders from all over Africa, and from around the world.


To transform cancer control in Africa
through collaboration in education,
research, and the delivery of equitable
and timely interventions to minimise
the impact of cancer


Africa, a continent where all have
universal access to cancer care
