LMHI 2018 will be hosted in the city of Cape Town also known as the “Mother City” from the 05-08 September 2018, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). This is a multicultural city that boasts modern world-class infrastructure, breath taking views, heritage sites, one of the world’s greatest wonders “Table Mountain” and nearby Robben Island where the infamous Nelson Mandela was incarcerated.

We are excited to host our colleagues from all over the world, for the first LHMI congress to be hosted on African soil. We extend to you an invitation to join us for LMHI 2018, Cape Town in an idyllic setting where old friends meet and new friendships are forged. We look forward to you experiencing our country, our city, our renowned South African hospitality and a successful congress on “Contributing to Sustainable Healthcare”.

The Congress theme is derived from Goal 3 of the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) and is of enormous importance to the prosperity of all nations, the mitigation of the impact of poverty and war on the well-being of individuals, and the promotion of efficient healthcare for all in the face of a host of communicable and non-communicable disease threats. The Organising Committee believes that, as a system of medicine, homoeopathy has an important role to play in our conceptualisation and promotion of sustainable healthcare, and I urge you, as clinicians and researchers, to share your scientific insights and experiences in respect to the promotion of homoeopathy within the pursuit of the SDGs. Let us utilise the opportunity of the LMHI Congress 2018, at the southernmost tip of the African continent, to bring together the various threads of scientific excellence within homoeopathy, to share our experiences and to harness the strengths of our gentle yet potent medical system for the betterment of all of humanity.

Apart from the excellent scientific programme, the organisers will also ensure various tourism experiences are available for delegates as well as incredible opportunities for socialising and entertainment. Our website (www.lmhi2018.org.za) is the main portal of communication for all your delegate, presenter or exhibitor needs. Travel information, information on calls for abstracts and more are all available online. Be sure to book early, register online – we welcome you to South Africa in 2018!
