A joint European Union/South Africa user-oriented diffusion conference and exhibition on "Telematics for Health and Disabled and Elderly People" will be held in Gauteng, South Africa, on 16-18 May 1996. The event is being organized by the "Club de Bruxelles" in cooperation with the South African Medical Research Council and the South African Department of Health. It is supported by the European Commission (DG XIII).

The conference will examine the manner in which state-of-the-art telematics technologies can provide solutions to the complex health problems of South Africa and the southern African region, and improve the quality of life of the disabled and elderly. Telematics projects from the European Union and South Africa will be demonstrated, highlighting the potential for working towards collaboration within common areas of interest and fostering mutual benefit.

The conference is targeted at users of health telematics, health planners and managers, clinical service providers, epidemiologists and health professionals, rehabilitation technology professionals, users of technology for the disabled and the elderly and researchers from South Africa, the southern African region and the rest of the African continent.
