Africa Health ExCon to showcase the latest medical solutions for the Africans – official
Africa Health ExCon is the largest medical conference and exhibition in the continent, set to offer medical solutions to ensure COVID preparedness for all Africans, its chairman Adel Adawy said in a television interview on Sunday.
Adawy, who was also Egypt’s former minister of health, added that the Egyptian Medical Association will participate in more than 350 technical sessions in this medical event, which will address topics relevant to all medical specialties.
Africa Health ExCon will host more than 700 Egyptian and foreign speakers in panel discussions and sessions in addition to up to 350 exhibitors, including national and international pharmaceutical companies, as well as global medical equipment suppliers, he further said.
The event crystallises the directives issued by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to expand multidisciplinary cooperation with the African neighbouring countries, on top of which is the healthcare sector. This has made the Egyptian Authority for Unified Procurement (UPA) and the Egyptian Medical Association jointly organising Africa’s largest medical conference and exhibition.
In Africa, the mortality rate surged to exceed 40 percent rate, and the continent faces 25 percent of global emerging diseases, but only has 3 percent of the world’s physicians. The African countries also rely on the imports of medical supplies. This is whey Egypt’s Africa Health ExCon will be launching to share insights about medical solutions.
Under the auspices of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Africa Health ExCon will take place from June 5-7 at Egypt International Exhibition Centre – Al Manara International Conference Centre. Held under the theme “Your Gate to Innovation and Trade”, the event will contribute to advancing the Egyptian – African ties, while grasping the attention of the international medical companies to the investment potential in Africa through the right sourcing of products and equitable distribution.
