Dr. Adel Adawy, Africa Health ExCon Chairman and the former Minister of Health stated that Africa Health ExCon is Africa’s largest medical conference and exhibition. Further, 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 also offer consensual solutions to ensure COVID preparedness for all Africans.
As a guest on Amr Khalil’s TV show airing on CBC, Adawy stated that the conference 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.
As highlighted by Dr. Kahled Adawy, Africa Health ExCon crystalizes the directives issued by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi to expand multidisciplinary cooperation with the African neighboring countries, on top of which is the healthcare sector. Accordingly, The Egyptian Authority for Unified Procurement “UPA” and the Egyptian Medical Association jointly organizes Africa’s largest medical conference and exhibition.
He also referred that the mortality rate in Africa surged to exceed 40% of the global mortality rate. Further, Africa faces 25% of global emerging diseases, but only has 3% of the world’s physicians. The African countries also rely on the imports of medical supplies. Thus, Egypt will launch Africa Health ExCon to share insights about medical solutions.
It is worth noting that the UPA will launch the first edition of Africa Health ExCon from June 5th to 7th, 2022. Under the auspices of H.E. President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, the event will take place in Egypt International Exhibition Center (Al Manara International Conference Center). 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.
