About Africa Health
Africa Health is a major three day exhibition and congress held in South Africa dedicated to all healthcare professionals and medical trade buyers. Africa Health is an integral part of Informa Exhibitions' successful Life Sciences portfolio.
Africa Health Exhibition & Congress provides a unique platform for the world's leading manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to meet with the medical community from sub-Saharan Africa region and beyond.
The first edition of Africa Health launched in May 2011 and was a great success with over 290 exhibitors including leading companies such as Siemens, Fujifilm, Karl Storz, Nihon, Kohden, Agfa, Maquet, ArjoHuntleigh, Unicore and many more. Over 30 nations were represented including pavilions from China, Germany, France, Korea, India, Taiwan, Italy, Bavaria and USA.
Over 35% of exhibition space was rebooked on-site for 2012, demonstrating the success of the first edition of Africa Health.
Any healthcare manufacturer or distributor looking to reach the medical market in sub-Saharan Africa should exhibit at Africa Health.
The sub-Saharan African healthcare industry is expected to sustain its growth rate in the near future due to persistent burden of disease and poor demographic conditions. People are affected by the poor health delivery and high costs. Governments are realising the importance of providing quality services and are increasingly looking into public-private partnerships to improve their healthcare systems. Infrastructure developments as well as drug supply, especially in primary healthcare will be the main focus in the coming years.
