Dear SA Hypertension members, colleagues & Industry Partner,

After due consideration, the Southern African Hypertension Society (SAHS) Board decided to postpone the Joint SAHS & SASS biennial Congress from 2020 to 2021 due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Protecting the health of our attending delegates, faculty and that of the public is a responsible recourse and SAHS support efforts to stem the spread of the Coronavirus.

The SAHS Board will assess the status of the coronavirus outbreak and will consider possible dates for the Joint Congress in 2021 and revert in due course.

SAHS value your understanding and continued contribution to the education of the health care professional through your support of our Congress.

Should you have any queries, please contact the society office: karen@medsoc.co.za

Yours Sincerely

Dr Martin Mpe

SAHS President
