Latest technolgy at Abu Dhabi expo
Abu Dhabi, August 26, 2007
Global healthcare equipment manufacturers will showcase their latest technology at the Abu Dhabi Medical Congress next month.
The UAE Health Minister Humaid Mohammed Al Qutami is scheduled to inaugurate the event.
Scheduled from September 2-4 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the congress will feature an extensive conferences programme and an exhibition.
Al Quatami will also address the inaugural session of the Healthcare Insurance Conference, which aims at closely focusing on the various challenges, regulations, and increasing customer demands in the healthcare insurance sector within the UAE as well as across the Middle East.
The region’s healthcare insurance sector is growing at over 21 per cent annually and the premium growth has outstripped that of major industrialised countries.
As the GCC countries spotlight healthcare insurance regulatory plans, the Healthcare Insurance Conference offers an ideal platform for both insurance professionals as well as those within the healthcare industry to examine and debate the various issues that impact them, said a spokesman.
The Healthcare Insurance Conference aims to deliberate key issues including quality healthcare cover for all; the challenges in implementation and monitoring mandatory healthcare insurance in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and the requirements for becoming a licensed healthcare insurance provider in Abu Dhabi under the recent laws.
During the four-day insurance forum, there will be significant updates from the Health Authority in Abu Dhabi (HAAD) and the UAE Ministry of Health.
The event is supported by Daman and Waseel, key industry players who have been actively involved in the implementation and monitoring of the healthcare insurance regulations.
The Abu Dhabi Medical Congress is organised by IIR Middle East. - TradeArabia News Service
