The iCMLf Forum for Physicians from Emerging Economic Regions 

The iCMLf Forum, held annually, is a partnership project between the iCMLf and The Max Foundation. The aim of the meeting is to focus on the challenges faced  by physicians in emerging economic regions, where resources are often limited, and to share the work and initiatives implemented to overcome these. The iCMLf Forum showcases specific topics relevant to these regions, highlighting local projects that enhance CML patient management.
