The Sfax Technology Park-based cluster “HealthTECH”, whose main mission is to develop health technologies, will represent Tunisia in the European “BETTEReHEALTH” project.
The project funded by the European Commission under the H2020 program is designed to support the deployment of e-health in developing countries in Africa.
This ambitious project involving 6 European partners and 5 African partners has been officially launched in early March and will run for two years (2021 and 2022), Mohamed Jemaiel, Secretary General of HealthTECH and its representative in the European project told TAP.
The project aims to “contribute to the development of better, more accessible and more efficient health and care services in African countries, by coordinating and supporting the deployment of sustainable e-health solutions,” he added.
BETTEReHEALTH supports the development of both new and existing strategic partnerships on the African continent, as well as between European and African actors in health, research, education, business and government, Jemaiel further indicated.
