Rwanda: FIGO Regional Congress, Africa and Eastern Mediterranean 

FIGO is excited to be hosting a Regional Congress in Kigali, Rwanda in cooperation with the Rwandan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology and regional partners. 

Location: Kigali, Rwanda 
Date:10-12 June, 2020

Located in the heart of Africa, Kigali serves as an excellent meeting point to bring together FIGO Member Societies and partners in the region. Known as the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda has incredible wildlife, scenery and culture. We hope that you can attend to experience Rwanda’s remarkable beauty and hospitality and to build relationships in Africa. Rwanda was devastated by Genocide against the Tutsi in 1994 and we must remember the victims and respect the survivors. By holding our Regional Congress in Kigali, FIGO will celebrate and learn from Rwanda’s progress since 1994.

The last decade has marked a considerable decrease in maternal, neonatal and child mortality in Rwanda and the country is on the path to Universal Health Coverage (UHC) with over 90 percent of the Rwandan population using a community-based health insurance scheme.

During the Congress we will explore how Rwanda and other countries can build sustainable strategies to increase standards of care, lower mortality rates and to lead the healthcare sector toward quality and equitable healthcare coverage.

Other collaborative events

FIGO also participates in scientific meetings organised by other bodies, including Regional Federations and Member Societies affiliated to FIGO, which request some level of FIGO endorsement. 

Direct FIGO involvement in the organisation of the meeting may be required, and FIGO has a variable role in developing, approving and sometimes contributing to the Scientific Programme.
