Cairo marks the grand conclusion of Philips’ annual pan-African Cape Town to Cairo roadshow that kicked off on 11th May 2015, in Cape Town. Cairo is the ninth stop on the roadshow’s journey which covered 12,000 km across 11 cities and 8 countries over a period of 4.5 months. Cape Town to Cairo has gained significant momentum over the past five years, allowing Philips to get to the heart of some of the key issues facing Africa – including Mother and Child Care, the rise of non-communicable diseases, energy efficient LED and solar lighting solutions, as well as shining a spotlight on the need for clinical education and training.
The 2015 roadshow continued to drive the conversation around sustainable energy solutions. As part of Philips dedication to improving healthcare in Africa many substantial innovations and partnerships were announced and Philips illuminated a number of iconic buildings, which will leave behind a permanent legacy, while also reducing energy consumption.
