Another busy month for us with three meetings in October. First off, Prof Asim Jamal Medical Oncologist gave an excellent overview of presentation, diagnosis and management of neuroendocrine tumors which are not as rare as originally felt. KESHO then partnered with Pathologists Lancet Kenya to discuss molecular diagnostics in hemato-oncology. Speakers from France and our very own experts deliberated on the changing landscape of hemato-oncology and what is practical in our setting. Finally, a multidisciplinary webinar session on breast cancer concluded our sessions for the month in recognition of the Breast Cancer Awareness month, with presentations from Dr. Gladwell Kiarie Medical Oncologist, Dr. Fred Okuku Medical Oncologist, Dr. Aba Anoa Scott Radiation/Clinical Oncologist and Prof. Ronald Wasike Breast Surgeon.

We took a well-deserved break in July 2019 and came back in August for a mixed presentation on CML and osteogenic sarcoma from Prof Nicholas Abinya Medical Oncologist and Dr Mohammed Ezzi Medical Oncologist. The outcome for patients with CML has significantly improved with TKI therapies, yet challenges persist in adequate monitoring which is expensive. The lack of co-ordinated multidisciplinary care needed for osteogenic sarcoma led to many lost to follow up and incomplete treatments with poor outcomes. MDTs prior to treatment is a potential strategy for reversing this trend.


Date: 27th June 2019 | Venue: Panafric Hotel

We directed our focus on hematology and this time we concentrated on pediatric malignancies. Dr. Jamila Rajab Consultant Haematologist, Dr. Grace Mbatia Paediatric Oncologist and Dr Festus Njuguna Paediatric Oncologist. We got a glimpse on the myriad challenges our colleagues in hematology face in the management of pediatric hematological malignancies including complicated regimens, high rate of drop outs and poor supportive care. The outcome was to continue in the process of development of national treatment protocols that can be used which can also help in comparing treatment outcomes in the different settings.

Date: 23rd May 2019 | Venue: Radisson Blu

This was a busy month for our members with three educational events! Dr. Joe Ruturi Cardiothoracic Surgeon and Dr. Solomon Mutua Clinical Oncologist started off the month with discussions on upper GI cancers, in particular esophageal cancer. KESHO collaborated with ROCHE in their sub-Saharan MPANGO two-day meeting in which many of our members were speakers. The conference focused on triple negative and HER2 breast cancer, colon and lung cancer. The month ended with an excellent multidisciplinary meeting on colon cancer spearheaded by our very own past Chair, Dr. Gladwell Kiarie Medical Oncologist and Dr. Rajendra Chauhan Surgical Oncologist. There was a lot of input from our surgical and radiation colleagues.

Date: 27th April 2019 | Venue: Movenpick Hotel

KESHO held a half-day joint symposium with the HIV Clinicians Society discussing the various aspects of HIV related malignancies and how we can better co-manage these patients for improved outcomes. More local research is needed to understand the true prevalence of a co-diagnosis of HIV and cancer and in particular non-AIDS defining malignancies.
