Welcome to the SANBTC 2021 Congress
The theme for the 2021 congress is “Shaping a sustainable future”.
The Scientific Committee will be compiling a comprehensive and exciting programme in which local and international speakers will address the challenges facing blood collection and transfusion in South Africa, Africa and the World. Presentations and discussions by invited speakers and delegates will focus on future strategies to ensure the sustainability of blood transfusion in terms of managing donors, resources and the blood supply, marketing and information technology, patient blood management and blood safety.
The congress aims to provide a platform for delegates to acquire information on scientific developments, share knowledge and network with other professionals in their fields. As in previous years, we hope to welcome a growing number of delegates from neighboring African countries to widen our pool of knowledge and ensure the sustainability of blood transfusion as an essential service.
Our sponsors and exhibitors will also be displaying the latest equipment and technology available in the market in a vibrant Trade Exhibition.
The Social Committee will be working hard to create a fun-filled social programme that will include a welcome cocktail evening, a casual dinner with the traditional singing competition, a Gala dinner and an early morning Fun Run along Durban’s glorious Golden Mile.
As chairperson of the Organising Committee, I cordially invite you to attend the 36th SANBT Congress. We look forward to getting to know you while you relax and enjoy Durban – “the warmest place to be”.
