Healthcare, in its quality, accessibility and affordability, is a vital aspect to evaluate the value of living in a certain region. A rapid growth in the population of the Middle East is creating big opportunities. The Middle Eastern Governments have created various strategies and ideas to improve the healthcare sectors in the region. Major projects have been taken up by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE to maintain the health standards of the nation. The main focus is on new technologies and helping the public experience in healthcare has led to many new innovative healthcare centres across the GCC. For this reason, every year UAE sets up the Arab Health Conference and united key opinion leader, healthcare experts, healthcare product manufacturers and service providers under one roof.
For 45 years Arab Health has brought the latest innovations in healthcare. From state-of-the-art imaging equipment to the most cost-effective disposables; advancements in surgery to developments in prosthetics, Arab Health continues to play a crucial role in healthcare in the Middle East. Each year Arab Health welcomes more than 84,000 attendees from 159 countries. Accompanying the exhibition is a number of businesses, leadership and Continuing Medical Education (CME) conferences and workshops providing the very latest updates and insights into cutting edge procedures, techniques and skills. Arab Health connects together manufacturers and service providers with clinicians, procurement professionals, dealers and distributors from all over the world.
With healthcare expenditure in the GCC projected to reach US$ 104.6 billion by 2022, adding 31,000 hospital beds and employing 10,000 new physicians, Arab Health is instrumental in driving this development.
In 2018, Rightangled took part in a health tech trade mission to Arab Health with the Department of International Trade in the UK. We met many healthcare professionals, develop relationships and discussed the future and importance of DNA testing. We showcased our DNA testing service to an engaged audience that is looking for new developments in health and genomics.
