On behalf of the Organizing and scientific Committees. We have the great pleasure to invite you to the 18th Pan Arab Conference on Diabetes PACD18 on 25th to 27th March, 2014.

We are confident that we will be able to make this conference a very special and memorable event. The scientific sessions of the conference will be dominated by scientific data from worthy speakers. This will be beneficial for post graduate trainees, district specialists and family physicians. Keeping in view this background, the conference will focus on new aspects and current updates, introduced recently in the field of diabetes and its related disorders.

This conference is a timely reminder of the inter-related nature of today's non-communicable diseases and of the complexity of diabetes itself. The conference is also an indication of the ongoing commitment of the fight against diabetes in the Arab nations and our efforts in Egypt and Arab countries on behalf of people with diabetes, their families and those who provide their care. Based on the above the organizing committee is preparing to receive about 3000 participants as this conference is already the biggest one not only in the Arab region but also in the whole Middle East area.

We wish that all the family physicians and specialists of the region will participate in this conference to update their knowledge, especially on prevention of diabetes and its complications like coronary artery disease which is one of the major killers of the human life.

Cairo is already the largest city in the Middle East and Africa and it has a lot to offer to visitors with extreme friendly atmosphere. We look forward to welcome you at this unique event.
