FHM Engage Co-Hosts 2nd Annual Private Health Sector Exhibition in Madagascar

Last month, our FHM Engage team in Madagascar cohosted with the Association for the Private Health Sector (Groupement du Secteur Privé de la Santé or GSPS) and worked to produce in collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health and USAID/Madagascar, the second edition of the Madagascar Private Health Sector Exhibition or the «Salon du Secteur Prive de la Sante 2024» in Antananarivo. Propelled by the event’s theme of "Let's work together for better health for all,” organizers aimed to use this event to promote private health market stakeholders – in particular those working on maternal and child health, family planning, nutrition, and other priority health areas – among state institutions and donors.

The event included:

  • 49 exhibitors from the healthcare sector presenting their products and services
  • Four discussion panels with technical experts
  • 11 conference sessions on the latest innovations and research
  • A "Business to Business" meeting for private healthcare providers with financial institutions  
  • Eight capacity building sessions and technical training for private providers in maternal and child health
  • Other events for partnerships agreements and networking activities.

The event attracted 1, 428 participants and multiple market actors. Both national and international stakeholders including the West African Federation of Alliances of the Private Sector of Health (Fédération Ouest Africaine du Secteur Privé de la Santé  or FOASPS) and APOLLO Hospitals contributed to the success of this event.
