IMTD Africa 2010 – The first ever focussed exhibition & conference to promote Indian Healthcare Industry in Kenya & Uganda

‘IMTD AFRICA 2010 – India: Medical Tourism Destination 2010’ will be one of the largest and focused healthcare exhibition & conference to promote Indian Healthcare Industry in East African Countries. In continuation to the highly successful IMTD 2009 in Toronto, Trident Exhibitions will be organizing ‘IMTD Africa 2010’ in Kenya during May 10-11, 2010 at Kenyatta International Exhibition Centre, Nairobi and in Uganda during May 15-16, 2010 at Uma Exhibition Centre, Kampala.

A sizable number of patients are coming to India for medical treatment from East African countries- particularly from Kenya & Uganda. As per Indian High Commission based in Kenya & Uganda in 2009 approx. 12000-15000 people have travelled to India for various medical treatments.

Kenya’s and Uganda’s health infrastructure suffers from urban-rural and regional imbalances, lack of investment, and a personnel shortage. The volume of trade between India and Uganda has increased; India is now the second largest exporter. Indian exports constitute around 8.5% of Uganda’s total imports. Major exports are: pharmaceuticals and medical equipments. There is ample scope for investment in areas like specialized hospitals, clinical laboratories and diagnostic centres. Kenya is the third largest African market for Indian drugs. These countries do not have specialised hospitals where spine, joint replacement, cardiac, bone marrow transplant, cosmetic surgeries can be done.
