IFP Iraq has the pleasure to invite you to take part in Medicare Iraq - Erbil 2016 set to take place from 23 to 25 May 2016 at the Erbil International Fair Ground, Kurdistan Region, Iraq.
Iraq, a country of over 30 million inhabitants, is far from recovered on the medical scene, and the needs for modern healthcare technologies are massive. The country’s real GDP is estimated to be the highest in the region over the next few years, and the government’s increasing oil revenue is being translated into billions of dollars of infrastructure projects.
