On behalf of the WCPT Africa Board, Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and Scientific Committee of Congress 2020, I present another update concerning Congress 2020 in the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic.
We believe you are in good health and staying safe.
As indicated in March 2020, the evolving nature of the pandemic was being monitored and analyzed to enable us provide updates. A major and critical review of the COVID 19 situation has been jointly undertaken recently to help determine our next steps.
In view of the latest developments worldwide the following is decided;

  1. The Benin 2020 Congress is postponed to 2021 but will still be called Benin 2020.
  2. The new date is October 28 to 31, 2021. M/
  3. Further statements will be released as and when necessary.

Thank you.
Jonathan Quartey
Chair, WCPT Africa Board.
