CAPE TOWN – ORGANISERS of AfricaCom have added a new digital health conference stream for this year’s edition scheduled for Cape Town in November.
This is in view of mobile technology being the next great enabler in healthcare in the continent.
“We have included several new tracks on the conference agenda this year, with e-Health a prominent addition,” said Tom Cuthell, Portfolio Director at KNect365, the organisers.
He said with more people finally having access to the immediacy and the information that the internet brings, personal health management was becoming achievable and was set to be one of the fastest growing industry sectors over the next few years.
“This presents incredible opportunities for the entire health and wellness ecosystem and we look forward to hosting healthy and robust discussions on these topics and many others at this year’s event,” Cuthell said.
Topics on the agenda for debate and healthy insight on Tuesday November 7, include a look at the current digital health landscape and the opportunities as well as strategies needed to address the challenges of
implementing these new ideas.
AfricaCom, the continent’s single largest and most ‘connected’ technology media and telecommunications event, is scheduled for November 7-9.
