Egypt to launch Africa Health ExCon on June 5 to propel healthcare investments in Africa
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 16 - 05 - 2022

Egypt's Authority for Unified Procurement (UPA) is launching the first edition of Africa Health ExCon, under the auspicious of President Abdel Fattah al- Sisi on June 5-7.
The health forum will take place at Al Manara International Conference Center- Egypt International Exhibition Centre (EIEC) Cairo- Egypt.
Organised by Global Conference Management, Africa Health ExCon will bring together C-suit professionals in the health and pharmaceutical sectors under the theme: Your Gate to Innovation and Trade.
Pharmaceutical and healthcare companies will refocus on the investment potentials in Africa through the proper sourcing of products and equitable distribution of the medical technologies in all the African countries, which significantly contributes to achieving the agenda of the healthcare sector in Africa.
UPA's head Bahaa El-Din Zidan said that Africa Health ExCon is a sustainable platform that brings together world healthcare partners under one roof and promotes intra-extra African trade flows.
Africa Health Excon's importance manifested in accelerating Goal 3 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030, Zidan added.
Goal 3 is based on sustaining healthy lives, providing global health coverage, and ensuring accessibility to meet certain quality thresholds for essential services. In addition, Africa Health Excon aligns with the Agenda African Union 2063, which is boosting investments in the healthcare sector to enhance the health level in the continent.
UPA's official also lauded the recent efforts to turn Egypt into a pharmaceutical hub by developing the healthcare sector as a pillar of Egypt vision 2030 and following the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: Good health and well-being.
Egypt has worked on restructuring a comprehensive healthcare system, known as a Unified Medical Procurement System, nationalising the pharmaceutical industry in line with the perspective of the political leadership, and operating GYPTO pharma in Al Qalyubia.
These reforms are positively reflected in the surge of the healthcare sector's investments 19 times, reaching 54 billion Egyptian pounds (around $3 billion) in 2021, compared to 2.7 billion pounds in 2013, he added.
Supporting Egypt's Vision that concedes with the African Union's strategy, the event will showcase the best practices on the regional and the continental levels for achieving sustainable development and ensuring accessible healthcare services using high-quality medical technologies.
Africa Health ExCon is a unique opportunity for healthcare service providers to explore the current trends in various segments, including medical necessities and equipment, pharmaceuticals, laboratory consumables, chemicals, dental equipment and supplies, dermal products, nutrition, vitamins, healthcare providers, pharmacies, feeding industries, and packaging.
The forum will host more than 2000 delegates from the public medical institution and key figures all over Africa and the Middle East. More than 350 international exhibitors will also take part in the event. Africa Health ExCon expects to have more than 20,000 visitors from more than 100 countries.
