Action oriented respectful partnerships for public health in Africa: Partnerships for access to medicines
To achieve a new public health order for Africa, action oriented respectful partnerships are required between all actors in the health value chain – from the research and academia community to manufacturers of health products, supply chain actors, policy makers and healthcare professionals, across government, non- governmental organizations, development partners and the private sector. The Africa CDC envisions a transformed health landscape marked by innovative solutions, equitable access to healthcare, and resilient systems that can effectively respond to health crises.
Through panel and open forum discussions, the session aims to address the urgent need for cross-sector and cross-border collaborations in tackling the multifaceted challenges that impact public health in Africa. By emphasizing on action-oriented approaches the session will seek to cultivate a conducive environment for forging effective partnerships. Through engaging discussions and knowledge sharing, the event will explore strategies for forming partnerships that drive positive change. By leveraging expertise from various stakeholders and sectors – including healthcare, technology, policy, and academia – participants will explore innovative ways to bridge gaps in healthcare delivery, enhance disease surveillance, and strengthen healthcare systems.
