‘Medicare 2020’, the national healthcare exhibition opened for the 11th consecutive year at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), Colombo yesterday under the theme ‘Healthy Sri Lanka – Happy Sri Lanka’.
The 3-day exhibition organised by the Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Ministry consists of five main pavilions – Health Awareness Expo and Ayurveda Expo for Sri Lankan healthcare providers (government and private) to make them aware of cure and prevention; Medical Tourism Expo to promote international hospitals; Medical Equipment Expo for international companies to meet local agents, suppliers and relevant government authorities which would help them to establish their businesses in Sri Lanka; and Medical Education Expo to promote higher education opportunities available in the healthcare sector for local and international students.
This exhibition offers businesses and medical institutions an ideal platform to build networks and discover cutting-edge breakthroughs in medical science. However, its primary purpose is to provide the public with timely, accurate and important information and updates on health issues and the latest technology available for disease diagnosis, prevention and cure.
This milestone event will consist of up to 230 local and international stalls in the medical sector, showcasing their products and services to educate more than 15,000 people and industry stakeholders.
It will also be held at Veerasingam Hall, Jaffna on March 20, 21 and 22.
