The Africa Health Agenda International Conference 2019 is taking place this week in Kigali, Rwanda, from 5th to 7th March. It will serve as a platform to foster new ideas and home-grown solutions to the continent’s most pressing health challenges, with a focus on achieving universal health coverage (UHC) in Africa by 2030.
Driving Universal Health Coverage in Asia and Africa through Community-led Innovation
March 6th, 10:45 – 12:30 (CAT)
This is a consultation, which examines the various actors and components that make up complex heath eco-systems in the global south – serving as a platform that builds trust across sectors, and can reap significant dividends in accelerating UHC. Following this event, a similar Asia UHC consultation will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam in May. Deliberations from both Africa and Asia consultations will be shared at World Health Assembly (WHA) in May 2019.
This event follows the Innovations for UHC Conclave held in June 2018 in Bengaluru, India, and a high-level consultation held along the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in September 2018.
