TUNISIA – The Republic of Tunisia, the northernmost country in Africa, has landed a major deal to host the first-ever Africa and Middle East Digital Health Conference and Exhibition (AMDHC) in partnership with the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The Tunisian Association for Heath promotion, in partnership with WHO, are hosting the Africa and Middle East Digital Health Conference and Exhibition in Tunisia from 22nd September to 24th September 2022 at the Mehari Golden Yasmin and Diar Lemdina Expo Centre, Yasmine Hammamet.

According to AMDHC, the conference and exhibition aims are to stimulate a new vision of health through information technology, building on the experience of Tunisia and others who will share their knowledge and expertise during the event.

Mr Izhar Mahjoub, AMDHC Head of Scientific Committee, said, “Tunisia has a huge amount of experience in the digitalization of healthcare systems and is well placed to become a hub from which Africa and the Middle East can build and expand their digital healthcare systems.”

The inaugural conference and exhibition involving a programme of tailored events will see the attendance and participation of over 150 doctors, Information technology (IT) engineers and digital health experts as well as 50 speakers from across the world.

During the conference and exhibition, there is a coordinated B2B and B2C opportunity to meet with speakers and experts through the AMDHC Fireside Chat programme and the opportunity is a chance to discuss ideas and technologies with experts.

The forthcoming event will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn from Digital Health transformation strategies and programmes as well as understanding the services and applications that can be used.

The attendees will also learn about standards that need to be applied and interoperability thus ultimately the event will stimulate and accelerate the digitalization of healthcare across the African region and beyond.

With a large exhibition area and over 40 exhibitors, attendees of the conference and exhibition will be able to see systems in operation and speak to those who can provide solutions to digitalize healthcare.

The attendees will have an opportunity to listen to experienced experts from across the world as well as meet and network with innovative suppliers and build a regional digital healthcare community across Africa and the Middle East.

The programme of tailored events come at a time when the recent global COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance being able to collect and collate data from across a broad area so that the data can be analyzed and used in the fight of diseases and illness.

AMDHC explained that digital healthcare systems can enable analysis and use of health facility data to facilitate a focus of resources into keenly affected areas and allow decision makers to be able to make crucial evidence-based decisions.

AMDHC further said that digital healthcare systems create an ability to care for more people across a broader geography, noting that the digital system allows access to medical records, which can be crucial when treating the sick, and eases access to healthcare.

Furthermore, the Africa and Middle East Digital Health Conference and Exhibition is the perfect opportunity for experts and healthcare professionals to come together, learn from other programmes and see the latest innovation in this space.
