Kenya Healthcare Convention
This is an annual Expo + Conference event where ECL is in partnership with Amref Health Africa. 
The principal objective of this Convention is to give all Healthcare sector players an opportunity to showcase the best of their best to Kenyans so that they know what is available in the country.  It has been established that majority of Kenyans do not know what healthcare services are available in the country hence frequently looking for the same service outside the country.
The Convention also seeks to position Kenya as a Regional Healthcare Hub as well as Healthcare Investment Destination.  Kenya is strategically positioned in the East and Central Africa region and is already regarded as a regional healthcare hub.
The initiative is endorsed by Ministry of Health (MoH), Council of Governors (CoG), Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), Kenya Healthcare Federation (KHF) and Kenya Investment Authority (KenInvest).  The first Convention was opened by President Uhuru Kenyatta on March 9, 2020 at the Sarit Expo Centre, Westlands, Nairobi.
