26 - 29 November 2017
From the 26th – 29th of November 2017 the Dutch Embassies in Qatar & Kuwait and the Task Force Health Care Middle East (TFHC) will organise a Life Sciences & Health (LSH) mission to Qatar and Kuwait.
The GCC healthcare sector is abuzz with a series of mega projects under various stages of development. These are well supported by the regional governments‟ long-term strategies to streamline the healthcare system, rollout of mandatory health insurance, and technological advancements. Over the decades, a focus on prevention of diseases and increasing access to healthcare has radically improved the region’s health indicators such as life expectancy and infant mortality rates. Further, rising affluence, a growing population, and increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases are expected to continue driving the demand for primary and advanced healthcare services. The role of private players is becoming imperative in this growing healthcare market.
What to expect?
The LSH mission will provide excellent opportunities to meet new relevant business contacts and to learn more about the Qatar & Kuwait Life Sciences & Health sector. The LSH Mission is relevant for companies and knowledge institutes active in the Dutch Life Sciences and Health sector, in particular for those in the following fields: Medical Devices and appliances, Hospital Build, design and equipment, eHealth, Health Development/Knowledge/Education.
