  3. Supporting professional development: We aim to support the professional development of future urologists, by offering opportunities for continuing education, networking, and mentorship.
  4. Promoting collaboration in Africa: We will work to promote collaboration between healthcare providers, researchers, and other stakeholders in the field to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and best practices, and to foster innovation.
