From 20 – 24 May 2019 the Dutch Consulate in São Paulo together with Task Force Health Care have the pleasure to invite you to participate in a targeted individual matchmaking programme for the Life Science and Health sector, on and around Hospitalar in Brazil. 

Background Brazilian healthcare sector

With its 209 million inhabitants Brazil is the biggest health market in Latin America, the 7th biggest economy and 3rd biggest private health market worldwide. Brazil’s Unified Health System (SUS) is experiencing stress on the existing health infrastructure and costs, due to rapid expanding of health coverage, an ageing population, an increase in chronic diseases and an unequal distribution of health within the population.

The (financial) sustainability of the SUS is a main priority for the Brazilian government, which has led to several reforms in the healthcare sector. For example, a bill was passed to allow telemedicine consultations between physicians and patients. Implementation of innovative technologies and care concepts are encouraged. This provides an opportunity for the Dutch sector to showcase its solutions, best practices and seek cooperation with Brazil.

What can you expect during the programme

Hospitalar is the biggest trade fair of Latin America, and the gateway to the Latin American health care market. High-level LSH stakeholders from all over Brazil (and other Latin American countries) come to São Paulo during Hospitalar to network and find partnerships, make business deals.

The offered individual matchmaking programme will provide an excellent opportunity to meet specifically matched relevant business contacts, possible partners or health organisations. You can expect the following program components during the mission.
