We are very excited to participate in the largest and most prestigious International Emergency Medicine Conference in Africa which attracts over 800 delegates. The inaugural Aeromed Africa Conference & Exhibition took place in March 2012 and was a first of its kind conference that addressed the role and contribution aero-medical services can play in the contributing to healthcare service delivery and in particular creating access to scarce health resources in developing countries. Aeromed Africa welcomed over 200 delegates and 18 trade exhibitors. We invite you to be part of EMSSA 2013 by becoming a delegate, sponsor or exhibitor and in so doing help EMSSA promote & support the development of emergency medicine in the country.
