Phase II of CCA's U.S.-Africa Health Security & Resilience Initiative

In Phase II, CCA is building on the achievements of Phase I to become the pre-eminent platform driving and shaping private sector engagement from both the United States and Africa in the development of a much more agile, expanded African health care market in which the private sector has established strong and effective partnerships with the public sector. HSRI will continue to strengthen its partnerships with International Organizations, including the AU, UN, World Bank, WTO, African and U.S. governments and international donors, including NGOs. As a member-driven initiative, HSRI will continue to focus on priorities identified by members. In phase I, members identified three main areas of focus, including disease management, universal health coverage and trade and investment. In Phase II, HSRI will partner with members to feature more practical examples of how companies and governments can work together to solve specific problems and expand trade and investment, with the aim of improving public and private sector engagement and increasing opportunities for public-private partnerships.
