Africa Health Business Symposium has hit a new milestone this year – it was the first time that the continent was united in West Africa with public sector, private sector and development partner representatives from 51 countries across the globe! Moreover, this conference was a historic partnership effort between the Ministry of Health Senegal, the Private Health Federation of Senegal (FOASPS) and Africa Health Business Ltd., leading the path towards the joint objective of transforming the healthcare landscape in our continent.
New relationships were made and old ones renewed as members met in Dakar for the 3 days of fully charged events. The good news is that there is a willingness and demand for the state and non state partners in the healthcare ecosystem to come together to collectively take responsibility of meeting the healthcare challenges. Our diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists provided in-depth insight, as well as, actionable and practical tools of engagement models, methods and mechanisms.
