The three-day Public Health Innovations Conclave (PHIC) Expo 2021 on health innovations will be at Hitex in Hyderabad from November 12-14.

The Expo, which is being organized for the first time in Hyderabad, is expected to host representatives from World Health Organization (WHO), who will take part in discussions and deliberations at the mega event.

Speaking at a curtain raiser event recently, Dr. Ranga Reddy, president of Infection Control Academy of India said that this will be a first of its kind event exclusively on Public Health in India. It will feature innovation, technology and best practices in public health to deal with “Life after Pandemic”.

“The first time when the whole world was hit with Covid, we were unaware of it. It took the whole world by shock. Now, we are better equipped and prepared to handle future pandemics if any. Now we cannot give that excuse that it caught us unaware. So, PHIC 2021 helps to prepare to handle such situations in future. It is impossible to eliminate Covid-19. So let us at least control it,” said Dr Reddy.  

He felt that the pandemic has helped us to learn more and paved a way for many innovations. Normally, it takes many years for a product in its journey of evolution. The global average of the lab to the bedside is 3 years to 10 years. We have to minimize this time. For which we need a good eco-system for the same, Reddy said.

The conclave is an effort towards keeping the community safe in the post-pandemic scenarios by using the technology developed by our scientists and innovators. The 3-day event is dedicated to lessons learnt from the pandemic and future-readiness, added Krishna Yedula, secretary-general, Society for Cyber Security Council (SCSC).

Speaking further, he added that under SCSC’s fold are sectors such as IT, pharma, real estate and others, and are the highest employers. So, many of their members will participate in the summit and especially on day 3, where  they will participate in deliberations on Tech Innovations to promote digital health.  

As 30 per cent of Covid patients are still suffering its after-effects, they need some tech innovations to mitigate their sufferings. Since the whole world is working from home, the action is at home. So in this edition of PHIC 2021, we have also roped in Resident Welfare Associations to take care of preventive health, informed Dr. Reddy.

The three-day expo will feature medical equipment, laboratory technology; hospital & surgical products digital health solutions; real-time monitoring devices; infection prevention and control products; hygiene and sanitization products; Air Sterilization and air purifier products; water treatment and water purifier products; sewage treatment plant (STP) etc and others.

More than 80 exhibitors are expected to showcase their products. Exhibitors like Pratham Industries, Air Vitamin, T-Works Foundation, Trivector Biomet, Vishal Surgical Equipment, Ledchip Indus Pvt. Ltd; Alon Scott Industries Ltd and other are expected to take part in the PHIC expo.
