Maldives International Healthcare Exhibition 2011
I just stumbled upon the website of the Maldives healthcare exhibition. I think it is a good initiative to explore the possibilities in expanding your options in healthcare. It is to be held on 17th to 19th March 2011. Here’s what their website say:
“The major health problems and key issues faced by the Maldivian health sector is a result of the inherent structural problems faced by the country. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), geographical severity of the country, coupled with the scattered population, leads to severe diseconomies of scale in the provision of healthcare services.
Lack of adequately-trained personnel, shortages in professionally and technically skilled health manpower, difficulty to access safe drinking water and proper sanitation, malnutrition among children, increasing cases of anaemia, maternal nutrition deficiencies, food security and food safety, vector-borne diseases are some of burning issues that the Maldivian Government is facing. The health sector is also changing rapidly and more advanced treatment systems are now available in the industry. Therefore it is important to educate the general public of such advanced treatments, new innovations, and best hospital services etc, to live a healthier lifestyle.
Maldives International Healthcare Exhibition will play a vital role in supporting the national objectives of the Maldivian Government on the above burning issues by encouraging the exposure of new trends, technologies and also in educating and creating awareness amongst the general public to face new challenges in the sphere of personal health.
The Maldives International Healthcare Exhibition is planned to be held in March 2011 with the participation of many local and international medical and healthcare service providers.”
