Last year this CEO-level event attracted over 500 senior delegates from the private health care services, including over 80 investors. "We are delighted to partner with HBI for this event which brings together high-level health sector leaders from all over the world. It uniquely focuses on how the industry will benefit from global partnership" says Dr. Amit N. Thakker, Chair of Africa Healthcare Federation.
