    Background: DELEGATES FROM MORE THAN EIGHT AFRICAN COUNTRIES ATTENDED A FIVE-DAY CONFERENCE OF THE ASSOCIATION OF MEDICAL SCHOOLS WHICH BEGAN ON WEDNESDAY (8 APRIL) IN ADDIS ABABA.

    THE MAIN THEME OF THE CONFERENCE WAS OUTLINED BY DR. AKLILU HABTE, PRESIDENT OF THE HAILE SELASSIE I UNIVERSITY. HE URGED THE CONFERENCE TO DISCUSS PLANS FOR THE EXCHANGE OF PROFESSORS, PUBLICATIONS AND STUDENTS -- A MOVE WHICH WOULD EVENTUALLY ASSIST IN DRAWING A UNIFORM AFRICAN-ORIENTED MEDICAL EDUCATION.

    HE ADDED THAT THE CONFERENCE SHOULD ALSO CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING PERMANENT HEADQUARTERS OF THE ASSOCIATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF EXCELLENCE IN ONE OR TWO AREAS IN WHICH THEIR MEDICAL SCHOOLS NOW HAVE EXPERTISE.

    OTHER SPEAKERS ENDORSED DR. HABTE'S RECOMMENDATIONS AND WENT ON TO POINT OUT HOW BENEFICIAL SUCH A MOVE WOULD BE TO THE ENTIRE MEDICAL PROFESSION IN THE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.
