DUBAI HEALTHCARE CITY, UAE - Aug. 23, 2015 - PRLog -- Medic West Africa Exhibition and Congress is the largest healthcare event in the region and will take place for the 4th time from 14-16 October 2015 at the Eko Convention Centre in Lagos, Nigeria.

More than 350 of the industry's leading local and international manufacturers and distributors will showcase the latest innovative healthcare products and services to more than 4,000 attendees during the three-day exhibition.

"As there is a lot of attention on the West Africa Healthcare market, Medic West Africa Exhibition is the key platform for sharing knowledge and information, as well as getting together manufactures, decision makers, investors, suppliers and distributors as one way of building partnerships and business,” says Dr. Jide Idris, Honorable Commissioner for Health, Lagos State.

According to Simon Page, Managing Director, Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, organisers of Medic West Africa, “West Africa's healthcare expenditure continues to rise, with Nigeria at the forefront with an expected expenditure of US$18.51 billion. Nigeria's large investment is, in part, due to the government's continued efforts to push their health insurance scheme and expand the population's access to healthcare.”

Running alongside the exhibition are 3 CPD-accredited conferences and free-to-attend master classes facilitated by the industry's leading companies, pulling in attendance of the medical elite from across the region. The accredited conferences are designed as an educational platform for anyone involved across the full spectrum of healthcare including healthcare management, imaging and diagnostics, infectious diseases.
