A first in Africa, this workshop combined four events: a research methods workshop, a basic echocardiography (echo) workshop, two days of advanced echo as well as a rheumatic heart disease research think-tank. 130 delegates from 19 different countries representing all six continents attended the event, making it truly global and giving attendees the opportunity to meet and network with experts in the fields of rheumatic and congenital heart disease.
