North Africa Health: Spotlight on the Healthcare Industry
Published in Ahram Online on 26 - 03 - 2019

Amongst the North African countries, Egypt formulates the biggest demand in healthcare development.The Egyptian healthcare market continues to grow, primarily due to demand from thecontinuous increase in general population(expected to reach 151 million by 2050), and,specifically, due to a gradual increasein the elderly population (from the currentlevel of 7.8 per cent to 15.3 per cent by 2050), as wellas increase in health insurance coverage.

Every year, Egypt reportedly needs a minimum of2,500 to 3,500 beds (1.5 to 2 beds / 1,000population), resulting in a requirement ofan additional 26,000 to 77,000 new bedsby 2020(and between 102,000 to 178,000new beds by 2050), a considerable increase,thus offeringample investment opportunitiesin the country's healthcare sector.

Keeping in mind this need for growth,Informa Exhibitions, the organisers of Arab Health Exhibition & Congress,have launched North Africa Health, which is set to take place from April 6 to 8, at Egypt International Exhibition Center (EIEC), situated in New Cairo.
