    Dear IAMRA Members and Partners,

    Earlier this year, I wrote to you in recognition of the extraordinary effort and dedication of medical regulatory authorities around the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 2020 has been a challenging year for us all, both personally and professionally and I am sure that you share my fervent hope that the commitment and hard work of front-line practitioners, public health officials, scientists and researchers around the world will be rewarded in 2021. Again, I would like to acknowledge the efforts of medical regulatory authorities in ensuring high standards of clinical practice while at the same time, dealing with the unique challenges of the pandemic. 

    It was with great regret that the Management Committee made the decision to postpone the 2020 IAMRA conference which was to have taken place in Johannesburg in September 2020. Rest assured that we will present an in-person conference again when it is safe and feasible to do so. In the meantime, I do hope that you have been enjoying our program of webinars which we expect will continue into 2021. I encourage members to join them and meet their counterparts virtually even if we can't meet in person.

    Despite the challenges we are all facing in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, and perhaps in light of them, IAMRA’s community continues to expand. Please join me in welcoming our newest members and partners:

    IAMRA has seen impressive examples of our members ensuring that science, not politics, dictates how medical practice occurs and is regulated, as well as innovative approaches to working together to create safe environments for health professionals and their patients. We wish to commend all of you for your efforts and will offer our continued support where we can.

    On behalf of IAMRA's Management Committee, I would like to wish you all the very best for the holiday season. I hope that you are able to spend some time with those that are close to you and can rest and recuperate in preparation for the year to come.

    IAMRA Management Committee Meeting, December 9, 2020

    From left to right and top to bottom: Lauren Stewart, IAMRA Staff Officer; Roxanne Huff IAMRA Operations Officer; Joan Simeon, Member-at-Large; Dr. Kgosietsile Letlape, IAMRA Chair; Daniel Yumbya, Member-at-Large; Dr. Alison Reid, IAMRA Executive Director; Dr. Hank Chaudhry, IAMRA Secretary; Martin Fletcher, Member-at-Large; Prof. CS Lau, Member-at-Large; Dr. Heidi Oetter, IAMRA Chair-elect; and Nicole Krishnaswami, Member-at-Large.


    Stay safe, and please accept my very best wishes and heartfelt appreciation for your continuing support of IAMRA.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Kgosi Letlape
