Thank you for organising a fantastic programme in Dubai and connecting the HealthTech industry to investors. I was able to meet the 'right people' and have meaningful conversations around the HealthTech sector in GCC and the opportunities for investments. It would be a great pleasure to be part of this forum in the coming years.

I had the opportunity to meet leaders from various walks of life in healthcare and interact with innovative startups that are truly revolutionising the healthcare sector. Their groundbreaking ideas and solutions were not only promising but also incredibly impactful.
Dr. Anand Govindaluri

The programme played a crucial role in expanding the reach of technological advancements within healthcare systems, particularly in response to the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. It laid the groundwork for attracting private and institutional investments into healthcare infrastructure, systems, services, education, and innovation.
