Santiago, Tuesday, September 12, 2023 – The most important international exhibition and congress of the health sector in Chile, Expo Salud, which will be held until Thursday, September 14 at the Metropolitan Santiago convention center, was inaugurated today.

But also because it presents a space for reflection on possible future policies that would help to better resolve people’s health,” said Osvaldo Salgado, Undersecretary of Health Care Networks. The meeting will enable professionals and teams responsible for the areas of management, supply, logistics, attention and patient care from the public and private sectors to strengthen the medical system by obtaining new knowledge and answers to various conflicts that hinder the development of the field. It will also present the latest in innovation and technological advances. “Technology has a gigantic potential that is almost difficult to imagine. Therefore, a space like this allows us to learn about developments and technology updates. Undoubtedly, it will increasingly improve people’s health and the Ministry of Health does not want to be oblivious to this. As it has done up to now, it has always supported the development of this initiative which, to the extent that it is broader, involves more countries, more people and a larger public, will undoubtedly be more beneficial for everyone,” said Salgado. The executive director of FISA and GL events Chile, Francisco Sotomayor, emphasized that “we are happy to start a fair with such high level representatives from various public and private institutions, who will show the advances for the future, both in the exhibition and in the 11 panels in which knowledge will be exchanged within the framework of the EISACH congress, with the participation of leading national and international experts”.

In this regard, the executive director of Fisa, Francisco Sotomayor, emphasized that the development of this exhibition “seeks to contribute to the reactivation of the economy and the development of the country. In addition to generating business, it creates opportunities for the creation of direct and indirect jobs that are produced around the fair”.
