According to WHO, nearly 75% of medical devices designed in industrialised countries fail to work in the developing world. This seminar aims to promote effective engineering solutions for the healthcare problems of developing countries. Developers and users will learn from each other by sharing needs, ideas and experiences. There are some shining examples of good engineering ideas which have brought great benefits to healthcare provision in developing communities. But there are too many others that have failed because the provider and the users had differing expectations.  Typical issues have been:
• how the equipment can be paid for in a poorly resourced country
• what problems it is trying to solve
• what the operating environment will really be like

You’ll meet and hear from academic and industry experts, outlining the realities of healthcare in a developing country environment and selected entrepreneurs

will present medical devices they have pioneered for developing country markets. There’ll also be a chance to build contacts at an evening reception and exhibition.
