The EADSG Scientific Congresses are comprehensive, multidisciplinary fora with a stellar faculty of leaders in diabetes and other Non-Communicable Diseases that connect the scientific community and accelerate life science discovery. They bring together more than 300 key stakeholders and leaders to discuss ambitions, priorities, and actions for change in diabetes and NCDs care within the East Africa Region. The Scientific Congresses are regarded as highly influential events aimed at raising attention to the health care delivery in diabetes and other non-communicable diseases in the East Africa Region. They also present an opportunity of networking and knowledge sharing among researchers, practicing healthcare professionals, program managers, policymakers and other stakeholders in the field of diabetes and other NCDs.
The main focus is on the prevention of diabetes and its complications and improved quality of life of people living with diabetes and other non-communicable diseases. These are areas of important research priority and fostered debate especially on the long-term implications for diabetes care and health policies. The signature design of the EADSG Scientific Congresses includes state-of-the-art review lectures and symposia by leading world experts followed by debates aimed at addressing controversies and generating consensus.
Every two years, the East Africa Diabetes Study Group organizes a Congress on Diabetes and NCDs that is held in one of the East African Countries. Uganda will be proudly hosting the 5th Edition of the EADSG Congress on 23-26 February in Entebbe- Uganda under the theme, “Comprehensive Diabetes Care in Low-resource Settings: Making it work”.
The Congress will be held at the Imperial Resort Beach Hotel, located along the shores of Lake Victoria about 3.7km (7-minute drive) from Entebbe International Airport.
We appeal to all individuals with passion and interest in diabetes and NCD care and research to register for participation.
