To mark the World Health Day scheduled for April 7, a healthcare technology firm, Emergency Response Africa has planned to hold a brand activation and mobile app launch in Lagos.

According to a statement yesterday, stakeholders from the public and private sector will use the forum to discuss emergency response in Africa.

“Every year, more than six million Africans lose their lives in situations that could have been addressed by effective emergency response. In Nigeria, this translates to 1.2 million preventable deaths every year from heart disease, stroke, accidents and injuries, pregnancy-related conditions and much more.

“It is often said ‘if only we had gotten help in time, my loved one would still be alive today.’ In an effort to shine a light on the current challenges faced by the emergency response in Nigeria and highlight the potential for technology to address this problem, Emergency Response Africa is inviting stakeholders from the public and private sectors to join the conversation.”

Keynote speaker is the Regional Director of Development of the multi-award-winning United Hatzalah of Israel, Shai Jaskoll. Other speakers and panelists are expected to explore different perspectives of the theme, ‘Transforming Emergency Medical Services in Africa Using Technology.’

“The event will host over 200 key decision-makers and leaders across the industries: hospitality, health care, construction, real estate, logistics, academia, financial services, media, technology, and government. This promises to be an exciting conversation, ushering in opportunities for cross-sector collaboration to improve emergency response across Nigeria.”
