Expanding manufacturing on the continent for effective public health response
To strengthen health security in Africa, there must be an agenda to develop a sustainable, local manufacturing industry on the African continent. This will not only increase access to life-saving health products and reduce reliance on other regions, but also be a much- needed safety net when other health crises strike.
Through panel discussions and open forum sessions, the event will delve into practical and actionable strategies for scaling up manufacturing capacity within the continent. Participants will explore ways to harness cutting-edge technology, build local expertise, and foster partnerships.
The session will be a timely platform to drive Africa CDC’s vision for a transformed health landscape, emphasizing self-sufficiency, innovation, and equitable access through enhanced manufacturing capabilities.
