EHA-HOPE, short for Highlights of Past EHA, is a concept of collaborative meetings, organized by EHA. This year the meeting took place in Cairo, Egypt, in partnership with regional and national societies in the Middle East and North Africa. EHA-HOPE Cairo 2017 aimed to bring the key messages from various fields of hematology of the 22nd Congress of EHA to the Middle East and North Africa. As such the meeting provided a summary of the most important education and scientific sessions of the EHA Congress relevant to the needs of the local hematologist.
