Strengthening Health Security and Resilience in Africa: The Continuing Critical Role of the Private Sector

Strengthening Health Security and Resilience in Africa: The Continuing Critical Role of the Private Sector

Recognizing the need for the private sector’s role in strengthening Africa’s health systems broadly and the response to COVID-19 specifically, CCA launched the U.S.-Africa Health Security and Resilience Initiative (HSRI) in December 2020. In its first year, HSRI task force members have brought together U.S. and African leaders from government, the private sector, and multilateral organizations to drive increased trade and investment in Africa’s health sector as well as highlight private sector solutions to pandemic related challenges and longer-term issues impacting health service delivery in Africa.
