Invitation From The Committee


Dear Colleagues and Delegates

It is our privilege to invite you to the 39th National Congress of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists co-hosted by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of the Witwatersrand. SASOG 2020 will be hosted from 7 to 11 March 2020 at Champagne Conference Centre in the Central Drakensberg. The national SASOG conference is the premier event in the conference calendar where colleagues and friends can meet up and discuss the latest issues in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. It is an important opportunity for us to ask ourselves what we can do to better in our profession to improve the quality of care for our patients.  This event has over the years established a consistently high-quality scientific programme with esteemed international and national speakers.

SASOG promises to deliver high quality informative and clinically relevant information from our top-class international and national faculty during the pre-conference workshops as well as during the Congress. The invited international speakers are all well-recognised experts in their respective fields and we are indeed privileged to have them taking part.

We are confident that the workshops, scientific programme, social programme and interaction with exhibitors, faculty, other delegates and colleagues will be an enriching experience for all.

We are looking forward to see you in the Central Drakensberg at SASOG 2020.
