The Breast Interest Group of Southern Africa (BIGOSA) was formed in 2011 by a group of medical professionals who realised there was a need for standardisation in breast healthcare in Southern Africa. One way of delivering on our primary objective is to empower all practitioners with appropriate skills through training and scientific meetings where breast healthcare progress and problems of interest to all clinicians and non-clinicians are presented.

The BIGOSA 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting takes place at The River Club, Observatory, Cape Town on 21 October under the over arching theme “Young women and breast cancer”.
