Africa Health, currently in its 7th official year, is the largest CME-accredited multi-track medical conference in the continent.

The exhibition offered key opportunities to create relationships within the healthcare trade, to showcase growth and achievements in the sector as well as to explore fresh prospects with strategic stakeholders in the healthcare field.

It showed off 18 country pavilions including: South Korea, Turkey, Taiwan, China, Pakistan, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Brazil, Italy, Poland, India, Austria, Illinois State, New York State and South Africa. 

The three day event also drew attention to products such as hospital and clinic services, hospital requirements and accessories, medical equipment manufacturing services, medical equipment supplies, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and compounds, medicines and other highly specialised medicines. 

Roberto Aristarco, Commercial Director from Steelco Italy, attended the congress with Abigail Botes, Kurt Jacobs, Michelle Murgatroyd and several others from SSEM.
