Dear friends and colleagues,
After thoughtful discussions with many Member Organizations as well as with the WONCA Executive, it has become clear that it will not be possible to proceed with an in-person physical WONCA World conference in Abu Dhabi in November 2021.
It has been decided to bring the WONCA 2021 Scientific World Conference fully online to the convenience of your own screen between 22–27 November 2021.
The virtual conference agenda will now be spread out over the week of November 22nd with a shorter 4-5 hours per day program, to ensure that content is delivered in more convenient segments. The program will include three days of pre-conference workshops and three days of conference proceedings.
Oral and Poster presentations will be available for your viewing and interaction with the presenters throughout the conference dates. Best of all, plenaries, special sessions, expert and breakout sessions will be easily accessible on-demand afterwards for all conference attendees to view at their own pace.
We believe this to be the most suitable approach for our global audience and we are excited that a virtual setting will make it possible to broaden the learning and engagement opportunities within our family medicine community at this important time.
You will be able to participate virtually in vital conversations around primary health care, as well as network and partake in interactive and engaging experiences through a dynamic virtual conference platform, including interactive exhibition features and plentiful opportunities for sponsorship exposure, all while being connected from the convenience of your home or office.
We look forwards to your participation and active engagement.
