Thank you for joining the journey towards Africa Healthcare Federation

Dear Reader

Congratulations on being an integral part of this historic launch event- One team : One continent - Africa Healthcare Federation.

Healthcare leaders from the 5 regions of Africa have committed towards  an actionable plan to mark the beginning steps of the Africa Healthcare Federation through a signed communiqué. Its impact in the healthcare  system will be experienced in the coming years, and we are very proud that the Africa Health Business Symposium set the stage in making this a reality.

AHBS hosted 380+ delegates from over 38 countries worldwide spanning 5 continents. This has been possible through the extensive support of our sponsors, partners, exhibitors, speakers, delegates and more importantly our shared belief that together, we can bring life to this dream.
