This year Main theme:
‘’Solving problems of medicine availability in Tanzania for National Economic Development’’

For accepted abstracts; Please consider the following guidelines in preparing your presentations/talks;

  1. The PPT should be aimed at a broad target audience not necessarily highly knowledgeable in the subject area. Avoid unnecessary abbreviations and technical terms.
  2. As a general rule of thumb the number of slides should be no more than 14 slides if you have a 20 mins slot, those with less or more time allocation should adjust this number accordingly.
  3. Use an ‘easy to the eye’ font style and size with black against white background being preferable.
  4. Where possible use images or illustrations to augment your point rather than too much text in a slide.
  5. Each slide should have a concise message for the audience.


A more detailed logistics note will be shared with you 2 weeks prior to the workshop with conference programme.

Best Regards,
Prof. Phr. Eliangiringa Kaale – Chair Conference Scientific Committee
