The BIGOSA 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting will take place on Saturday, 16 October 2021 under the theme “Advanced breast cancer“

We are committed to the value of connecting and learning as a profession, and although we can’t meet in person right now, we can still gather together in a virtual space to continue learning, growing, and contributing to South Africa’s recovery.

We have adapted the programme to suit the virtual format and included a variety of opportunities for interaction – among participants and between participants and speakers. We can’t replicate the in-person but we can maximise the virtues of technology to ensure we can continue to learn and grow together.

Challenging times present opportunities and we are certain that the BIGOSA 2021 Virtual Scientific Meeting will exceed expectations.

The Breast Interest Group of Southern Africa (BIGOSA) was formed in 2011 by a group of medical professionals who realised there was a need for standardisation in breast healthcare in Southern Africa. One way of delivering on our primary objective is to empower all practitioners with appropriate skills through training and scientific meetings where breast healthcare progress and problems of interest to all clinicians and non-clinicians are presented.
