The Middle East is one of our most important markets with significant future potential. But Arab Health is not only for the Middle East. It is an important international arena where we meet our current partners and establish new contacts with healthcare professionals who are eager to join us in our mission of reducing healthcare associated infections around the world, says Johan Rugfelt CEO.

Bactiguard has been exhibiting eight years in a row and attracted a lot of attention in our own booth.

Agneta Karlsson, Swedish State Secretary and Jan Thesleff, Ambassador to the UAE visited the booth to take a closer look at Bactiguard’s unique solutions for infection control and met with the innovator, Billy Södervall and Cecilia Edström, Acting Head of Sales, Marketing & Communications.

On Tuesday 27 January, a seminar on promoting international collaboration and investments in the healthcare sector was held, in the presence of Swedish State Secretary Agneta Karlsson and Iraq’s Deputy Minister of Health for Technical Affairs Dr. Sattar Jabbar. The Deputy Minister led a delegation including members of the Ministry of Health, its purchasing organization Khimadiya and specialist doctors.
