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 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting will take place in Johannesburg on Saturday, 12 October 2019 under the theme “Early breast cancer“.
