Outcomes of the WONCA Council 2023

The WONCA World Council Meeting 2023, held from Sunday, October 22nd to Tuesday, October 24th, in Sydney, Australia, played a pivotal role in shaping the future trajectory of our organization. Delegates from our seven regions undertook the responsibility of voting on critical resolutions that will chart our course in the coming years. The gathering played a decisive role in determining the leadership structure, including the new President-elect, executive members at large, and the host city for the 2027 WONCA World Conference.

We are delighted to announce the election of Dr Viviana Martinez-Bianchi (US) as the newly appointed President-elect. Additionally, we extend heartfelt congratulations to the newly elected members at large for the WONCA Executive Committee: Maria Pilar Astier Peña (Spain), Karen Price (Australia), and Steve Mowle (UK). Their dedication and expertise will undoubtedly contribute to the continued success and growth of our organization.

Looking ahead, we are also excited to reveal that the WONCA World Conference in 2027 will take place in the vibrant city of Cape Town, South Africa. 

The active participation and engagement of delegates and observers from 108 countries and territories, whether physically present or joining virtually, played a pivotal role in the success of this event. We extend our sincere appreciation to everyone who contributed to the robust discussions and impactful decisions. The accomplishments of this meeting underscore our collective dedication and offer a comprehensive view of the promising path that lies ahead for WONCA.
