The conference was held at the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU). This year’s edition was focused on Occupational Health, Maritime Healthcare, Travel Safety & Aerospace Medicine, Start-ups and Healthcare Disruptions, Leadership in Healthcare, Pharma in Healthcare, Patient Safety, Point of Care: Post Pandemic lifestyle Journey and Healthcare Innovation & Technology.

Besides conferences on changes healthcare should and will face to improving the possibilities for patients worldwide, other relevant panels included women leadership in healthcare and how their representation is key to moving the industry forward.

Scott VanderMeer, General Partner of Infusion 51a, commented about the two-day experience: “Healthcare Future Summit was a nurturing event with hundreds of KOL’s taking place in conversations everyone within healthcare and life-sciences should be having. We’re glad to have been part of it and look forward to many more conferences in the MENA Region around healthcare innovations.”

Mehrab Ajalli, Director of Strategic Growth in the MENA region and who also attended HFS, added: “The mindset of our fund is to help as many patients as possible and so was everyone who attended the Healthcare Future Summit. We hope to take action as a community in many of the addressed topics before HFS 2023.”
