This challenge invites young Tunisian talents to put their passion and creativity into the technological development of the health sector in particular healthcare and public health.

The ISTMT, as Contest Host, relies on the support of industrial partners for the accomplishment and the success of this competition. We consider this initiative as a national, technological and economic challenge.
