This show has enabled health professionals to discover thousands of products and evaluate the latest competing solutions in healthcare across all product categories within the region. Medic East Africa has been bringing its healthcare community together for seven years attracting 4,000 visitors including top government officials and private sector executives.

The event has established itself as the leading healthcare business platform in the West African region.

Furthermore, for 13 years, North Africa Health has brought together more than 5,000 healthcare providers, medical practitioners, manufacturers, eHealth experts, key buyers, distributors, policymaker’s stakeholders from North Africa to meet, learn and do business.
