Healthcare Future Summit to be held in Dubai this weekend

The Healthcare Future Summit (HFS), one of the world’s most important scientific events, will take place in Dubai on 12 and 13 November. The event will bring together some 1,700 health professionals, including 114 speakers from more than 40 countries.

HFS 2022 serves as a global platform for knowledge and innovation. It also serves as an interactive platform for decision makers, planners, healthcare professionals and entrepreneurs from the public and private sectors.

The summit will be held at Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences – MBRU, with the support of the Dubai Health Authority.

HFS 2022 will be held under the theme ‘Uniting Health Communities’ and will focus on 9 main areas: Health Innovation and Technology, Pharma in Health, Place of Care: Post-Pandemic Lifestyles, Travel Safety and Aerospace Medicine, Maritime Health, Health Leadership, Patient Safety, Occupational Health and finally Start-ups and Disruption in Health.

Dr Ramadan Albloushi, acting director of the Department of Public Health, Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and head of the HFS scientific committee, said: “DHA is keen to support the Healthcare Future Summit and other international medical events held in Dubai to facilitate the exchange of the latest medical information, expertise and knowledge.”

Dr Abdul Salam Al Madani, executive chairman of the Healthcare Future Summit and chairman of INDEX Holding, said: “We are honoured to participate in this year’s Healthcare Futures Summit alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. Many participants of the first HFS will be joining us in Dubai for the first time, and we expect the second Summit to lead to the formation of strong bonds and strong relationships in the healthcare sector that will benefit everyone and everyone. The Summit will also provide a unique platform to exchange information, share experiences and learn about the latest technological developments in the industry.”

He continued: “Although employment in the health and social work sector has increased by 42 per cent since 2000, we need to further develop these sectors as more than 1 billion people are expected to reach the age of 70 and above by 2050, so we need to make sure people are taken care of in the future.”

Notably, the healthcare sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world, worth about $8.45 trillion in 2018 and rising to $10 trillion in the last four years, reflecting advances in technology and research.

The second Healthcare Future Summit is organised by INDEX Conferences and Exhibitions Organisation Est.
