The Resilient Healthcare System Africa Wants
The African Union (AU) member states are committed to socially and economically transforming the continent under the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and Agenda 2063-“the Africa we want.” AU and its member states have made it clear they are looking to the private sector to play an important role in making the continent more self-sufficient to better prepare for future pandemics. Harnessing the strengths of the public and private sectors can help reduce risk and address a range of healthcare system needs, including attracting much-needed additional investment, increasing efficiency in delivery and procurement, and better managing existing data to expand overall healthcare access. Private sector partnerships can also help develop the health care workforce Africa needs. This panel will bring together key African officials to highlight opportunities for the private sector to strengthen Africa’s health care system while fostering sustained economic growth and transformation in the continent.
