Deputy Prime Minister Mr. Ghassan Hasbani stressed the great impact of technology in the health sector and expressed the pride of the Lebanese state of Promedz for its technical innovation and its contribution that has come at the heart of the Lebanese need. “Technology has a big role to play, not only in developed societies, but also in societies with limited budgets and a complex financial situation, and this shows in the awareness campaign for people with Epilepsy that Promedz did and I witnessed,” he said, “We are proud of Promedz and similar companies for their efforts in making the health sector in Lebanon the first in the Middle East, and we hope that we can continue to provide an incubator environment to enable you to continue your successes and achievements.”
Dr. Joseph El Helo, representative of the Minister of Health Dr. Jamil Jabak, discussed the improvement that the Health Care sector is making and expressed his thankfulness to Promedz for their continuous support to the ministry saying: “Despite the limited budget of the ministry of Health, we were able to help more than 289,000 patients in 2018 alone to get treated. In a study conducted by Bloomberg, Lebanon’s health sector ranked 32rd last year and 28 for this year, and ranked first in the Middle East. This is a sign of the progress of the health care sector in Lebanon,” he said, hoping that Lebanon would be among the top ranks in the coming years.
