Dear friends,

As Chairman, and on behalf of the organizing and scientific committees, I am delighted to welcome delegates from all over the world to the Tenth International Conference on Kangaroo Mother Care that will be held in Kigali-Rwanda, from 17-19 November 2014.

The International Network on KMC holds a conference every alternate year with the main objective of promoting current research and knowledge transfer, building up proper attitudes and universalizing the best practice all over the world including developing countries with limited resources where KMC should be the prime philosophy of care of Low Birth Weight Infants so that maximum benefit can be achieved.

This year, it is a great honor and privilege for Rwanda to prepare and host the 10thInternational Conference on Kangaroo Mother Care in Kigali.

In the past few years Rwanda has achieved impressive performances in the reduction of infant mortality including neonatal mortality. Therefore, this conference comes at the right point in time when our objectives are aligned to furthermore reduce infant mortality and move steps closer to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals. We are confident that this conference will attract high profile researchers and leading experts in the field of Kangaroo Mother Care whose expertise will benefit participants and will spread across the globe.

Before I conclude, I would like to welcome collaboration and inputs from relevant stakeholders to make this conference a success. As members of the organizing and scientific committees, we would like to invite you to participate to this conference and we are looking forward to helping you in your preparation process.

Once again welcome to the Tenth International Conference on KMC and welcome to the Country of a Thousand Hills!


Dr Fidele Ngabo
