There will be several activities designed for all key players in Eye Care including Ophthalmologists with various subspecialties, Optometrists, Ophthalmic Clinical Officers, Nurses and Non-clinical eye care managers. The congress will also offer an excellent opportunity for students to participate in research with their projects and also in some skills enhancing lab. We will also hold a graduation ceremony for the recently qualified COECSA fellows (2016) and the first AOC leadership training graduates.
A number of renowned international and high quality speakers from the region have been invited to cover various topics in the scientific programme; so come and enhance your knowledge in Team Work in Eye Care.
The Social Programme has a number of social activities, which are relevant to guests of all ages. Amongst these include the breath-taking view of Lake Victoria in a sunset cruise, the jaw-dropping Ugandan cultural dances and rib-breaking Classic Comedies. Take this opportunity to enjoy Kampala; a city that never sleeps. It is also your grand opportunity to enjoy the unique wildlife and beautiful sights in Uganda.
