The ‘Dubai-Africa Partnership for Better Health’ road show/event, which is billed for March 16th and 17th this year at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, will bring together at least 20 medical and hospital organisations with a range of profiles in terms of specialist focus areas including Paediatrics, Orthopaedics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Cardiology, Neuro Surgery amongst others.

According to the Dubai Health Authority in a release issued on Tuesday March 7th, Dubai Health Experience, and the local UAE Embassy officials will be on hand at the show to meet with key stakeholders in the Lagos healthcare industry as well as prospective customers.

A brainchild of the Dubai Health Authority launched in March 2008, the ‘Dubai-Africa Partnership for Better Health’ aims to promote partnership between the health and medical sectors in Dubai and Nigeria. The organisation noted that it will attract 500,000 international medical and hospital organisations (MHO) from around the world to the UAE by 2020.

The Africa road show, comprising a series of legs and focusing on different regions of Africa, will kick off with Lagos, Nigeria and move to Accra, Ghana on March 19.

Subsequent legs of the roadshow will follow in East Africa, visiting Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and Nairobi in Kenya; South Africa in Cape Town and Johannesburg and will finally culminate in Morocco, North Africa.
