The CEO of Standard Group Mr Orlando Lyomo has opened up the forum with a speech where he has underlined the importance of media in developing the healthcare.

He said: ‘’The role of media in any country, is mostly seen as informing people through news but the sheer ability of media to transform lives is massive. We want to participate in the change itself as an institution.’’
