Dear Delegates

In light of President Cyril Ramaphosa's announcement on 15 March and in the interests of public health, the Local Organising Committee for the SAAHE 2020 Conference in collaboration with the SAAHE Council has decided to postpone the SAAHE Conference to June 2021.

We apologise for any inconvenience but believe that this is the correct decision to ensure the safety of delegates, speakers and everyone involved. We will be in touch with all those who have submitted abstracts and who have registered in due course. Should you have any queries in the mean time, please contact us on +27 21 9101913 or email

We wish you wisdom and strength for the challenges you face in the weeks ahead and look forward to having you join us at The Doubletree by Hilton in Cape Town from 23 - 26 June 2021 when we can safely gather to learn together and advance the practice and science of health professions education. We anticipate that there will be many lessons learned from the pandemic and hope that many of those will be about how we rediscovered our common humanity in a time of unprecedented challenge and what it means to become and be a health professional.
