A team from Hemas Hospitals was available throughout the day to assist participants in providing vital information on different healthcare topics, way forward for a healthy life, details about different medical tests and many more. The stall also had exciting raffle draws for participants where they took some exciting gifts home from Hemas. 

The Medicare National Healthcare Exhibition 2018 focused on introducing and promoting the latest advances in medical science and technology. Organised by the Ministry of Health for the ninth consecutive year, it showcased the latest in modern healthcare, disease prevention, effective treatment methods, newest technology and latest services available in Sri Lankan hospitals and laboratories as well as the global medical sector.
