Africa Healthcare set to boom in 2014: Improving Africa's future

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

(PRWEB UK) 12 September 2013

The Summit will also feature an exclusive Webinar which will enable a live streaming from the conference with a live chat accessible to all of the hospitals, healthcare professionals and whoever can not make the summit from Africa. We will also be providing African organisations with the footage, PowerPoint presentations and papers from the conference shortly after the event. This access and the package will be complimentary.

The healthcare industry is set for huge growth across the world over the next coming years, particularly in Africa. The economic boom in many African countries has fuelled demand for improved healthcare. As governments try to meet demand and begin to implement universal health schemes, and the Africa sector undergoes “major policy, system and infrastructural changes”, investor opportunities are increasing tenfold. And as technology continues to develop within the region, the healthcare industry will only continue to expand.

There is no doubt that investors can expect strong returns, it is estimated that, by 2016, Sub-Saharan Africa’s healthcare market will rocket to $35 billion. Fedré Meiring, associate director of the Corporate Finance Division of Deloitte posits that:
“The healthcare sector appears to be well placed to take advantage of both the expected growth on the African continent and the relatively high proportion of global disease in Africa”.

According to the WHO, “The Sub-Saharan region alone accounts for 11% of the world's population and bears 24% of the global disease burden.”

The Africa Healthcare Summit 2014, 20-21 February, being held in London, is the perfect platform to explore the latest investment opportunities within Africa's healthcare industry and discover the latest regulatory changes, technological advancements, innovations and techniques. A 2-day conference, 40-booth exhibition, panel discussion and networking event, this is certainly a not-to-be-missed event. In fact, The Africa Healthcare Summit 2014 is the only event of its kind to bring large delegations of government ministers, senior hospital directors and healthcare professionals to Europe to network with international healthcare experts, investors and solution providers. Taking place in a 5-star venue in London, delegates will have the opportunity to gain in-depth insight into international developments in healthcare provision. 35 top-level speakers will be addressing a range of issues from, the future outlook for healthcare provision across Africa, and Developing a World Class Healthcare System on a Realistic Price Tag, to Strategies to Develop Africa’s Private Healthcare Sector, Tackling Gaps in Financing, and Public-Private Partnerships in Tele-Medicine. The Summit will also examine a number of case studies, including: international investment, technology providers, Tunisia, Ghana, Kenya and Ethiopia.
