Shaukat Khanum Cancer Symposium Update

Dear Participants of the 13th Shaukat Khanum Cancer Symposium,

Due to today’s unfortunate events at the Symposium, wherein proceedings were disrupted by violent protests, harassment and creation of a hostage situation by representatives of the Young Doctor’s Association (YDA), the symposium organizing committee has decided to cancel the remaining events of the 13th Shaukat Khanum Cancer Symposium. This decision has been taken keeping in view the safety of our speakers and delegates. This symposium is the premier oncology meeting in the region and its cancellation is a tragedy for science and for medical education, as well as being a source of national embarrassment for us all.
