reconnection and revival. A celebration of primary care.

Dr Mark Morgan

A message from the Conference Scientific Chair

As chair of the Scientific Committee for WONCA 2023 I am honoured to work with the members of the committee to design a program that has thought provoking and informative content that will be delivered in exciting and innovative ways. I hope you will come away from the conference with new global perspectives of primary care, new skills and new knowledge. Above all, I hope you will gain a sense of connection. The title of WONCA 2023, “Recovery, reconnection and revival. A celebration of primary care” is front of mind as we work through this global pandemic. The Scientific Committee will be working hard to ensure that WONCA 2023 lives up to this title.

A message from the International Advisory Chair

We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney, in October 2023. Recovery, reconnection and revival - a celebration of primary care is our theme. How appropriate this is for 2023!

Our program is sure to have something for everyone. It will be a celebration of primary care. The past years have been tough – with hard work and with COVID affecting our work, our homes, our friends and families. I was born in Sydney, and still think it is one of the world’s cities worth visiting and a great place in which to recover. You will be greeted with the well known Aussie friendliness!

This may be the first opportunity, since 2019, for many of us to see our Australian and International friends, so be assured we are aware that time for reconnection both academically and socially is important. We aim to revive personally, and in our passion for primary care.

A/Prof Karen Flegg, President-elect WONCA
