ICBME 2017 is the inter-disciplinary and international forum for exchange of ideas on all aspects of biomedical engineering and technology as well as health technology as they affect the continent of Africa and the entire globe.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) had stated that 'despite the exponential growth of scientific and technological development, low- and middle-income countries are still largely excluded from access to appropriate and affordable health technologies'. This conference is meant to address key needs, problems and issues and then take up the challenge of identifying future strategies and solutions. The event will in addition to other things provide an excellent opportunity to enable participants to meet both new and old peers.
