The Federation of African Organizations of Medical Physics (FAMPO)as a regional federation of the International Organization of Medical
Physics (IOMP) in Africa has been working since its inception in close collaboration with national organizations to promote the
applications of physics in medicine within the African region. In a region of 1.3 billion people, FAMPO's cherished dream was to
significantly increase the number of medical physics work-force, in consonance with the ambitions of the IOMP. In the line with this,
FAMPO has collaborated with other agencies such as the International Atomic Agency (IAEA) and IOMP towards strengthening
education and training of medical physicists, improving medical physics practices and achieving the needed recognition of the profession
within the region. The first regional conference of the Federation of African Medical Physics Organizations (FAMPO) will be hosted by

The major goal of the conference is to bring together Medical Physicist in clinical practice, academia, research and industry, and provide a platform for exchange and sharing of scientific information and experiences in all aspects of the profession.
This conference will serve as an opportunity for Medical Physicists and scientists in medical institutions, research centers, universities and standards laboratories to meet for discussions covering the entire Medical Physics spectrum. FAMPO welcomes and encourages the participation of women and early career professionals.
The conference will consist of sessions including the opening ceremony, plenary sessions, series of topical sessions with oral and poster presentations, a session for poster highlights, Exhibition.
