On behalf of the Sudanese orthopaedic surgeons association
I would like to welcome all our guests, visitors and speakers to our 7th
international orthopaedic conference.
Since our 6th international conference, more advances, updates and
improvements had occured in the orthopaedic surgery in Sudan.
In spite of the difficulties and the financial shortage and the limited
resources, our senior and junior orthopaedic surgeons have worked very
hard to provide excellent and first class services to the injuried and suffering
patients in Sudan and the neighbouring countries.
SOSA is still providing good training programmes for the orthopaedic
surgeons and the registrars. The monthly meeting and the hospital based
clinical meeting have proved a great success.
Like the previous conferences, we are honoured by respected professors
and consultants from different parts of the world. This conference will be
addressed by speakers from: UK, Germany, Ireland, India, China, Japan,
Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, Malaysia and United Arab
There will also be major contribution from our local experts, consultants,
specialists and registrars. Our goal from all this activities is to improve the
health services in general and particularly the orthopaedic services and
I would like to thank you all for accepting our invitation to speak in this
conference and to attend as delegates. Our sincere and special thanks to our
many sponsors, without whom this effort would not have been a success.
I wish you all pleasant and most enjoyable stay in Khartoum, the safe
and friendly city in the heart of Africa, and we hope that you will all enjoy
scientific programme as well as the accompanying social programme.
Dr . Sharaf Elgizouli Mohamed
President, Sudanese Orthopaedic Surgeons Association
