Dubai-Africa Partnership for Better Health Roadshow
Medical Exhibition held in Lagos on Thursday, 19th July, 2018 at Eko Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos
The Dubai-Africa Partnership for Better Health Roadshow is a platform that was successfully launched in March 2017 by Segma, an event organizer and management firm based in Dubai, UAE. The first leg of the road show successfully covered West Africa with visits to Lagos in Nigeria and Accra in Ghana between the 15th – 22nd of March, 2017. The event is held under the auspices of Dubai Health Authority (DHA) in association with Dubai Health Experience (DXH) and Emirates Airline being the Official Partner.
The event brings together health care providers and medical organizations from across Dubai, to visit destinations representing important and growing sources of health and medical tourism to the Emirate from around the world. It is geared at showcasing Dubai-based diverse health care providers, sharing information that is crucial and beneficial to those seeking specialised health care outside Nigeria and supporting the emergence of Dubai as a destination for Medical Tourism.
This year, the second leg of the Dubai-Africa Health Partnership, covered East Africa with events held in Nairobi, Kenya on the 17th of July and subsequently, Lagos, Nigeria on Thursday, the 19th of July, 2018.
The Lagos event was at the Eko Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos and officially kicked-off with a welcome speech by Aysha Al Aleeli of Dubai Health Experience. Rasha Kayyal, the Senior Events Manager of Segma, the organisers of the Dubai-Africa Partnership For Better Health Roadshow was also in attendance. The medical exhibition, which featured 14 exhibitors (health care providers across a wide range of fields and areas of speciality), gave attendees the opportunity to meet and engage with the health care providers one-on-one. The Health Bank, Dubai and The Neuro Spinal Hospital, Dubai were part of the exhibitors. Representatives from the Dubai Health Experience were also present. It was a great opportunity to find out what Dubai has to offer with regards to Medical Tourism.
Dubai is not only recognised as one of the best tourist destinations in the world, it is fast becoming a recognised and preferred option for medical tourism due to accessibility, high quality standards and access to international specialists as well as highly equipped, modern medical facilities. All these factors are crucial when deciding on where to go for the best medical care and treatment.
The impact and importance of this platform, the Dubai-Africa Partnership For Better Health, and what it means for Nigeria, cannot be overemphasised. It not only brings together the top medical service providers, it also allows attendees to engage with both the medical experts and representatives from the Dubai Health Authority. The wealth of information shared and opportunities this exposure provides are equally exceptional.
