Over 200 family practitioners gathered in Cape Town for the annual conference organised by the Academy of Family Physicians. The conference offered 12 continuing professional development workshops, five plenary speakers and 44 research presentations over one-and-a-half days. It enabled family practitioners from all over South Africa, from the private and public sectors, health centres and district hospitals, as well as registrars in training and university professors, to come together and engage in dialogue on the contribution that the discipline can make to health care in South Africa. We are grateful to the conference sponsors and to Prof Sam Fehrsen for speaking at the social evening.
