MEXICO CITY, April 10, 2018 /CNW/ -- In recent years, life styles have been modifying causes of death in Mexico and Latin America; in the mid-20th century, approximately 50% of all fatalities were due to common infections, reproductive problems and ailments associated with malnutrition. Today, these diseases account for less than 15% of all deaths, while non-communicable diseases (respiratory and heart diseases, and diabetes) as well as injuries, are responsible for slightly less than 75% and 11%, respectively, of deaths in the country.1
In 2006, LivedMed created ExpoMED, a space where the sector's different actors converge, that supports raising awareness about health care, ranging from innovation, research and technology to educational forums driving improvements in this sector, and which has become the leading space where different industry experts involved in the evolving health sector can come together.
"In 2018 we presented the 10th edition of ExpoMED México, the leading International Business Forum of Mexico's health sector, which creates links among outstanding actors and decision makers in Latin America with the most complete international offering of technological innovation, public and private health care institutions, technology developers, integrators, manufacturers and distributors, bidders, governmental and regulatory institutions, insurers, financial, sectoral, academic and research institutions, health care professionals and the retail sector," notes Ángel Vázquez Hernández, CEO of LiveMed and ExpoMED México 2018, adding, "Our primary aim is to build commercial ties and come up with surprising proposals to expedite access to health care, as well as leading the way on key issues for this sector, seeking to bring about meaningful change on urgent questions such as corruption, regulations, and innovation.
ExpoMED México is the leading international exposition in Latin American, with a vision of creating an international business network working to meet the needs of the health care sector in Mexico and the region as a whole.
