FRENCH HEALTHCARE CONFERENCE
Challenges of the health-themed fortnight
The Covid-19 pandemic has raised a number of questions regarding the resources allocated to health services and research in health sciences. Not every country can address the health crisis in the same way. Such an acknowledgement should drive a massive investment in essential public health services. Efforts must be at a national level, but above all collective, as the pandemic has proven to us that our world is deeply interconnected.
By 2030, the health sector will have to face numerous challenges, including access to health services in all areas, the promotion of health professions, the fight against health inequalities, the attractiveness of public hospitals, an ageing population, and the inclusion of disabled people.
Hospital buyers and decision makers, biomedical engineers, information systems division managers, endocrinologists and medical specialists in the diabetes field, diabetes patient associations, oncologists and medical specialists in the cancer field, cancer patient associations, local economic operators, insurance companies, Emirati and Saudi private operators, investors in the healthcare field, healthcare device dealers, health advisors of local embassies, journalists or media… Please do not hesitate to attend our conference.
To benefit from unique perspectives on and insights into French expertise, innovations and solutions in healthcare, thanks to this high-profile conference.
