What a union

It will be impressive and excited to attend this intensive program .

Is there any vacant for Students ?


    Yes please, we are happy to have students join us and it will certainly be a good opportunity to be mentored. Students can also be great advocates for the care of brain tumor patients. Though the meeting will be somewhat academic, Students should be able to pick important nuggets. We could offer you free registration. Just RSVP on the website.


Brain tumor is a call for concern in Cameroon as so many factors still exist that limits early diagnosis and even treatment of this health issue.


Brain Tumors and other Cancers is a public health issue in Cameroon with socio-cultural cultural barriers and cost of diagnosis and care amongst others being major hinderance to early diagnosis and care. This forum will be ideal to share best practices and experiences on how to manage and care people suffer with brain tumors


Brain tumor is still a call for concern in Cameroon as many factors still make its early diagnosis and management inaccessible/difficult.
