Welcome to IFOSWorld
It is with greatest sadness that we announce the death of Dr John Hamilton following a long illness.
Dr Hamilton was a past president of the South African Society of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery. He was passionate about promoting education and training in Africa, and was a founding member and treasurer of the Pan African Federation of Otolaryngologic Societies (PAFOS). He also served for many years in the executive committee of IFOS.
He was a man of principle, and his wisdom will be missed in the IFOS community.

Head Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC)
We all know that Head Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC) is the leading cause of death and disability in most parts of the world. The burden of HNSCC is putting a strain on the national health care systems and impoverishing individuals, families and society. Fortunately, vast majority of the HNSCC can be prevented or can be cured if detected early. However, millions of people suffer from delayed diagnosis, inadequate treatment, inappropriate rehabilitation and palliation. HNSCC control requires a multi-sectoral response from the Government, Non Government Organizations, health care professionals, civil society, academia, and industry. To draw the world's attention on effective care and control of HNSCC, International Federation of Head Neck Oncologic Society (http://www.ifhnos.org/home
) has proposed 27th July as the World Head Neck Cancer Day
To make our mission successful, we need champions like yourself who can promote the event in your own country. After a careful consideration, IFHNOS core committee has nominated each one of you to perform following functions for the year 2015
1. Motivate your Government to support for WHNCD.
2. Conduct CME under your own leadership and work with medical societies dealing with Head Neck cancers to organize nationwide events to promote the ethos of WHNCD
3. Work with the media to highlight different aspects of Head Neck Cancer such as prevention, early detection, management, palliation etc.
4. Report a compilation of all the WHNCD activities to the secretariat by September 2015

During the XIXth World Congress in Sao Paulo, the initiatives of the Educational Committee were discussed in the Executive Committee meetings of Sunday May 31st and June 4th and were approved during the General Assembly.
The paper on minimum requirements of an ENT training worldwide are combined with the initiative of Dr. Johan Fagan from Cape Town to start with an ENT training program within the Developing Countries. This training program should be totally different from the training programs in Developed Countries because of their need and possibilities and their different incidence of disease and complications. Dr. Johan Fagan developed the website Educational support for ENT surgeons in the Developing World
