The Africa Investment Summit on Health will bring businesses, governments, development institutions and philanthropists together to develop strategies that will significantly increase access to vital health commodities and supplies in Africa.

COVID-19 has confronted the world and exposed major flaws in humanity’s capacity to manage health emergencies. In Africa, the pandemic uncovered the gross inadequacies of its healthcare systems leading to calls for a fundamental transformation of health systems to address the current crisis as well as prepare for future pandemics.

“With Africa’s public and private sectors working together, combining political will with business knowledge, Africa’s health sector can be built to the point where it will deliver affordable health to Africans in an equitable manner”.

Aigboje-Aig Imoukhuede; Chairman, Board of Directors; African Business Coalition for Health & Founder and Chairman, Coronation Capital Limited

“Investing in health is not just a social good, it also makes a good business case. The AfCFTA-anchored Pharma Initiative represents lucrative private sector investment and innovation opportunities that will change lives, reduce poverty and contribute to Africa’s inclusive and sustainable economic development”

Vera Songwe; United Nations Under-Secretary-General & Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa
