Welcome to the EMSSA 2013 Website

The Emergency Medicine Society of South Africa is proud to present the 4th biennial Emergency Medicine in the Developing World conference, to be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from the 5th to 7th November 2013.

The theme for the 2013 conference is opportunity and innovation.

As always, we ask that you consider “Adopting a Delegate” to attend the conference. These delegates are chosen carefully and represent role players in Emergency Medicine throughout Africa, but do not have the means to attend the conference without your support. Please go to the Adopt-A-Delegate page for more information.
