An event entitled 'Appropriate healthcare technologies for developing countries' will take place from 18 to 19 September in London, UK.

Recent research suggests that almost 95 percent of medics practicing in less developed countries are reliant on medical technology that has been imported. Much of this technology, however, may not be fully utilised as staff have insufficient means to maintain the equipment or insufficient knowledge to operate it.

The event will look at overcoming the challenges of administering healthcare in the developing world and the need for appropriate, affordable, sustainable and quality equipment, supplies and support in both development and emergency situations.For further information, please visit: http://conferences.theiet.org/aht/index.cfm
