Their theme ‘Psycho-social Impact of HIV and AIDS on National Security and Strengthening Synergies Locally and beyond.’ gave us a great opportunity to market our Viral Load Analyzer (Bionner ExiStation).

Medirite was granted time to present on the last day of the conference. Our MD took this opportunity to support the ongoing conference as well as marketing our broad based Medirite Health Care and Distribution products. He also hammered Molecular Diagnostic System (Bionner ExiStation) during the Conference Evaluation Session.

Apart from Medirite Healthcare, there were two more Exhibitors, SearHealth – a medical Services Company and DMed – a surgical company.

 

The Uniformed Forces mentioned its gratitude for our support and expressed their wish to partner us in similar conferences. All of us who attended the conference were each awarded with Certificate of attendance.
