‘In Addis at the launch of the new Africa Business Coalition for Health championed through a partnership of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa [UNECA] and the Aliko Dangote Foundation under the chairmanship of Mr Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede.
The ECA has estimated a $66 billion per annum financing gap for healthcare in Africa. The public sector alone cannot cover this. There is a need for smart partnerships with the private sector and for their investments in pharmaceuticals, logistics, supply chain management, capacity support, technology, innovation, and other areas. The Africa Business coalition encourages the private sector to invest, to partner and be a more effective part of the solution to the continent’s health challenges.
With Didier Drogba, Véra Songwe, Aig Imoukhuede, Halima Dangote, Zouera Youssoufou, Michel Sidibe, Joseph Muchera , Dere Awosika among others’.
