The second WHO Global Forum on Medical Devices: ‘Priority Medical Devices for Universal Health Coverage’ will take place November 22-24, 2013 in Geneva, Switzerland.
The event will provide the global public health community with a forum for information exchange and collaboration to increase access to high-quality, safe and appropriate priority medical devices. This will impact the continuum of care ranging from screening to diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation under the Universal Health Coverage Strategy. The conference will allow end users and stakeholders from academia, international organizations, industry and NGOs to share their experiences and challenges in providing access to medical devices.
The forum will consist of meetings, workshops, poster presentations, plenary sessions and parallel sessions. It will also include sessions co-organized by international non-governmental organizations. Students, professionals, policymakers and academics are encouraged to attend.
