MENA healthcare sector ready for stronger technology integration
Mecomed to hold MENA Medtech Forum in November
The region's first medical technology forum is to be held next month and will bring together designers, manufacturers and suppliers of medical technology in the Middle East and North Africa.
The MENA Medtech Forum, which is organised by Mecomed, will be held 5-6 November 2014 at the Mohammed bin Rashid Academic Medical Centre in Dubai Healthcare City, will be addressed by medical luminaries as well as academicians and experts in healthcare.
"Medical technology now enables more accurate diagnosis and minimally invasive procedures for better monitoring, prevention and management of illnesses, many of them deemed life-threatening or debilitating earlier. Innovations in this industry help people live healthier, longer and more active lives," commented Rami Rajab, Chairman, Mecomed.
Modelled along Eucomed, the principal forum of the medical technology industry in Europe, Mecomed aims to bring all healthcare stakeholders in the medical technology industry together to improve public health in ethical, clinically and economically sustainable ways for the benefit of the MENA community.
