Health 2.0 Middle East 2013

Health 2.0 went to the Middle East!

A global hub of innovation and connectivity, located at the historic crossroads of the Middle East, Asia and Africa, Dubai is the natural choice for the first Health 2.0 conference in the Middle East.

The event took place at the landmark Jumeirah Beach Hotel on January 27-28, 2013, and brought together key Health 2.0 stakeholders in the Middle East: health entrepreneurs, IT solution providers, health authorities, health professionals, patient organizations, pharmaceutical companies, public and private insurance organizations, medical devices companies, telecom groups, financiers, policy makers, academics…

The inaugural Health 2.0 Middle East gathered the best and brightest minds to focus on health innovations and technologies transforming the local health care delivery systems. We had an exceptional line up of thought provoking speakers and over 25 LIVE demonstrations.
