The Africa Health Business Symposium (AHBS) is a pan-African conference that sits at the heart of the African healthcare scene.

In 2020 and 2021, via a virtual platform, the AHBS brought together key stakeholders in the healthcare development sector, including influential public and business leaders, experts, investors and entrepreneurs for a series of webinars themed Partnerships for resilient health systems’ – facilitating the sharing of insights and lessons learned.
Africa Women’s Health Day 2022
The Role of the Private Sector in Advancing Women’s Health in Africa
Women in Africa are the pillars of their families and communities. They serve as the life-givers, mothers, peacemakers, entrepreneurs and the providers of care for children and the elderly. However, they bear a disproportionately large share of the global disease burden and death. It is therefore crucial that we protect and promote the health of women on the continent – with a focus on quality, affordability and equity – for the wellbeing and development of both current and future generations. Additionally, significant socioeconomic benefits can be derived from improving women’s healthcare in Africa. Representing over 50% of a continent’s human resources, women’s health in Africa also has major implications on the overall development of Africa.
