The first edition of the International Forum "Building bridges with Africa and the Middle East: the role of Gruppo San Donato and GK Investment Holding Group in the future of Healthcare" will take place on Thursday the 22nd and Friday the 23rd of October 2020.
The Forum, promoted by the San Donato Group and GK Investment Holding Group in collaboration with The European House - Ambrosetti, aims to discuss the current and future challenges facing healthcare, which have inevitably been intensified by the Covid-19 pandemic. The first edition of the ECAM Council forum will provide a neutral platform for participants to explore the existing opportunities in the field of healthcare and related clusters in Africa and the Middle East.
The event sessions offer high quality content that will primarily focus on long-term investments and partnerships in health services covering infrastructure, high-tech and digital health, education, research, training and medical tourism. The various sessions will also address the importance of creating strategic health hubs in the Mediterranean, Middle East and Africa with particular reference to agreements between Italy, Africa and the Middle East.
ECAM Council seeks to make its contribution to a better world by working through governments, institutions and business and target forums to specific areas such as investment in healthcare, education and training.
Our events will act as a conduit that offers support to projects committed to developing the foundation’s core values of access to healthcare and educational platforms that promote cultural understanding and acceptance in the form of real life exchanges.
Our network includes the most influential experts and leaders across many fields and by working together, we can achieve change and a more stable and prosperous future in Africa and the Middle East.
Our mission is to share concepts, opinions, and facts so that we can work together to improve and revolutionise sectors of critical importance such as healthcare, education and training.
As a non-partisan not-profit council, we guarantee transparency in our approach to all of our projects. Just as the world after a pandemic is likely to be less global and more regional; so institutional pillars such as education, training and healthcare will also become more regionalised.
As such, the medical sector will become an important tool to increase resilience and sustainable development. To work efficiently, the regionalisation of healthcare must not be insular in outlook, rather, at ECAM Council we believe cross-border cooperation needs to be strengthened and enhanced if we are to create effective communication channels between operatives that permit best practices to be shared and applied.
Our key focus on healthcare investments and education will strengthen Africa and the MENA region, and we are happy to use our networks and skills to give back to a continent from which the world has taken so much.
