NEURAM FOUNDATION is delighted to announce the 2nd International Conference on Neuro-Rehabilitation to be held in Mauritius, May 27-28, 2020. It is endorsed by the Ministry of Health and Quality of Life, Mauritius and Bournemouth, University.

In a country that sees 3,000 new cases each year, the focus of this year’s conference will be on stroke rehabilitation.

NEURAM is fostering a partnership with a newly established stroke unit to improve overall care for patients and their families; by ensuring that rehabilitation starts from the day of onset and complements emergency life-saving care.

Mauritius is a leading economy in the African region, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has forecast a growth of 4% for 2019 and 2020 ‘thanks to favourable external conditions and an expected increase in public investment’.

Mauritius prides itself in having a safe physical and political environment, thus attracting an increasing number of tourism and businesses.

The efforts, in Mauritius, in successfully dealing with communicable diseases have not been matched by similar success with non-communicable diseases. Since 2010, an increasing trend has been observed in mortality rates due to main Non-Communicable Diseases (like heart diseases, strokes, diabetes, cancers and chronic respiratory diseases). To address these problems, the country has invested in facilities for cardiac surgery and neuro-surgery though the sequalae of a stroke, brain injury or spinal cord injury requires immediate growth and urgent attention. Mauritius strives to improve in this domain thus we organized the first international conference in May 2018. The success of the inaugural conference has continues in this, the 2nd NEURAM Congress!

The venue will be at the superb facilities of the Intercontinental Hotel in Balaclava. We look forward to networking with you while we strive to improve the lives of people with neurological disability in Mauritius.

We hope to see you there!
