Medicare 2011 from March 4 - 6

The three-day medical equipment and pharmaceutical exhibition - 'Medicare - 2011', conducted by the Ministry of Health is scheduled to be held at the BMICH from March 4 to 6.

Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena will be the Chief Guest, while a large number of medical representatives from China, Singapore, India, Pakistan and several other countries will attend.

The objective of the exhibition is to enlighten the public about new developments and infrastructure laid out by the Government to improve the country's health sector. Western Province Health Minister Jagath Angage said that visitors to the exhibition will also be educated on the state-of-the-art healthcare technology, proper disease prevention methods, effective treatment methods, the best services available in hospitals and laboratories in the country.

Visitors could view sophisticated medical equipment and pharmaceuticals at the exhibition. Parallel to the exhibition, seminars for professionals in the field of medicine and general public and especially for schoolchildren will also be conducted. The Minister said that the public need to be aware of the latest facilities available to help them in their ailments as they think that hospitals still use age-old treatments without updating them.

He said the exhibition will also change the misconception of our citizens seeking treatment for minor ailments abroad by passing our experts.

The exhibition will be an ideal opportunity for healthcare service providers in the private sector to showcase their latest products and services to the public and industry professionals.
