Dear Honourable Colleagues,

We are thrilled to let you know that, the Sixth International Conference on Mycetoma will be organised by the Mycetoma Research Centre, University of Khartoum in partnership with the World Health Organisation and the Global Mycetoma Working Group in Khartoum, Sudan in the period February 15-17, 2019.

The conference aims at providing an excellent forum for clinicians, scientists, social scientists, researchers, medical and health providers and students to deliberate critical issues in mycetoma, the challenges, opportunities, threats, budding problems in mycetoma, and to explore novel solutions based on national and international experience and expertise. It will be a great opportunity for meeting colleagues and sharing experiences.

The scientific meetings will include state-of-the-art presentations by internationally renowned experts in the field, panel discussions, symposia, short communications, meet the experts and poster presentations.

The Conference Theme is:

The Holistic management of Mycetoma

 The following issues will be discussed during the conference:

Novel Organisms Causing Mycetoma

Clinical Presentation of Mycetoma

New Diagnostic Tools for Mycetoma

Novel Therapeutic Approaches for Mycetoma

Patients Support & Welfare

In addition to the scientific activities, we are launching a striking, exciting, and hopefully enjoyable social programme to the delegates and their guests and that includes visits to museums and famous areas, to see fascinating Sudanese folklore and dance, Nile cruises and trips to Safari parks, Rea sea coastline and Bajrawyia Pyramids of the ancient Kingdom of Meroe.

Khartoum is a cosmopolitan town, bridging the gap between North and South of Africa, it is a safe city, situated at the beautiful confluence of the White Nile and the Blue Nile forming the River Nile. February in Khartoum offers visitors the chance to experience nice and dry weather with plenty of sunshine and fascinating blue sky.

We are expecting massive contributions from the mycetoma endemic areas, Americas, Europe, Asia as well as from the region. Your contribution to this important meeting is highly appreciated.
