The Africa Health Business Symposium (AHBS), curated by Africa Health Business (AHB), is a Pan-African conference that sits at the heart of the African healthcare scene. Over the last four years AHBS has emerged as Africa’s largest health business event. This year, AHBS will bring together some of the most influential public and business leaders and key stakeholders in the development sector for a series of webinars themed “Partnerships for resilient health systems”.  As Africa adapts to a new normal, partnerships in over-stretched health systems will continue to play an important role. The AHBS webinar series will consist of five sessions in October and November discussing key areas that are at the centre of change :

2nd Webinar Series Reports

Digital Health

29th October 2020

"There are so many great technologies out there. We can have the best technology, but if we’re not collaborating, especially with the public health sector where the majority of people in low- and middle-income countries are accessing care, these solutions and the potential impact will not be able to scale.."​

Managing Director, Global Health Initiative, Ada Health
"We are keen as an organisation to support, partner with, and develop startups. Especially in the context of Africa we see a lot of niche SMEs and addressing local issues but with the inability to scale, so AWS is keen to form partnerships in the healthcare space to help with this.."​

Healthcare financing

5th November 2020
"As Swedfund, we want to provide investment in healthcare companies that are providing quality care. We use PharmAccess’s SafeCare program to assess the quality of care as well as to help us know how to support organisations through technical support, among other avenues."​
Audrey Obara
Audrey Obara
Head of Healthcare Investments, Swedfund International AB
"At PharmAccess, the aim is to build health systems in such a way that people will have access to care, not only for today, but for the long-term. For that reason, we have an integrated approach where we work on the financing of care.."​

Kwasi Boahene
Director for Advocacy & West Africa, PharmAccess
"What is becoming evident and what we’re looking to fund is the availability of the right kind of healthcare solutions that are Africanised, that deal with African problems and are not prescribed from abroad or are ivory tower based solutions..."​

Manufacturing & Supply Chain

12th November 2020

"There is a great opportunity for manufacturers on the continent. We have great potential. The health market is over $250 billion, but local manufacturing is still extremely small. For drugs alone, we import something in the range of 90 to 95% of what we need. For equipment, it is even higher than that (in the 98% range), meaning that the opportunity for African manufacturers to step into this space is significant.."​
Ogwell
Dr. E. Ahmed Ogwell Ouma
Deputy Director, Africa CDC
"Today, Africa has a population of about 1.3 billion, but tomorrow there's an estimate that it's going to be around 2.4 billion. The structures we have today are not enough to scale for our population size of tomorrow. ."​
Chidnma Ifepe
Chidinma Ifepe
Head of Buyer Management, Africa Medical Supplies Platform
"When it comes to partnership with private sector organisations, it is important for both sides and co-creators to have the situational analysis done before public- private partnership is even manifested in a memorandum of understanding. We have often learned this the hard way..."​
