RIYADH: Saudi Arabia is set to host the Global Health Exhibition on Sunday in the capital, Riyadh, with the participation of more than 112 speakers from more than 27 countries, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
The three-day forum, held under the patronage of Minister of Health Fahad Al-Jalajil, will be at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center, with the slogan “Transformation in the Health Sector.”
The event, which is the largest forum for health care professionals in the Kingdom, is expected to attract more than 10,000 people, and includes five conferences that will be held on the sidelines of the event, including four continuing medical education conferences in public health, quality health care, and the future of medical laboratories and radiology.
This year’s event also includes the leaders forum, which aims to enable dialogue between thought leaders and government officials on achieving the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, advancing digital transformation in the health sector, and promoting access to medicines and technologies, leadership and governance.
New additions to the event this year will also include a “medical lab zone” that highlights the latest innovations and technologies in medical laboratories, and “Innov8 Talks” sessions that will showcase the latest health care innovations, startups and ambitious projects through live product presentations.
The forum will provide opportunities for visitors to meet industry professionals, clinicians and policymakers, access the latest medical discoveries and trends, as well as to network and develop business opportunities with the global health care community.
The Kingdom has made great strides over the past few years to develop the health care sector and improve its services to improve the quality of life, along with the government’s focus on strengthening health care infrastructure and digital health, strengthening public-private partnerships and adhering to the principle of value-based health care.
