The South African Federation of Healthcare Engineering (SAFHE) biennial event gathers senior people from the public and private sectors involved in the provision of healthcare services to seek ways to improve healthcare service delivery. It is widely acclaimed as the flagship event for healthcare infrastructure in Southern Africa. This year SAFHE is honoured to collaborate with ICAN (Infection Control Africa Network) who will be adding their specific knowledge and experience in infection prevention and control to this exciting multi-track conference.

The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the need for better awareness, preparedness and closer collaboration between the public and private sector and also the medical staff and infrastructure professionals. It highlighted our vulnerability to global trade and the need for improved early recognition of threats and coordination of resources to combat them.

During this year’s virtual conference we will take a holistic view of our healthcare services by analysing where we are today, and what is needed to shape a sustainable and adaptable healthcare infrastructure for the future. We will delve into the latest trends in infection prevention and control, design and construction, the changes required in management and operations, advances in technology, and explore the ways in which we can work smarter to improve healthcare service delivery and reduce costs.

The conference is aimed at the following sectors:

  • Hospital CEO’s, Senior Managers & Hospital Clinical Managers
  • Nursing Managers, Senior Nursing & Medical Staff
  • Technical Managers, Hospital Engineers & Maintenance Personnel
  • Health Service and Facilities Planners, Administrators & Managers
  • HR and Training Managers
  • Architects, Designers & Quantity Surveyors
  • Infrastructure Equipment Suppliers & Specialists
  • Clinical Engineering Practitioners & Technicians
  • Medical Equipment Suppliers & Specialists
  • Information Technology & Communications Specialists
  • Health, Safety & Security Specialists

The conference has been converted to a virtual event this year, managed by SBS Conferences & Exhibitions in partnership with MyPlanner. The high quality user interface offered by the MyPlanner Conference Platform offers an exciting virtual experience that will see speakers, attendees and sponsors gain access to the platform weeks ahead of the start of the conference and for two months post the conference, thereby providing for extended exposure and interaction.
