AFRICA HEALTH AGENDA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
2030 Now: Multi-sectoral Action to Achieve Universal Health Coverage in Africa
5-7 March 2019 • Kigali, Rwanda
The 2019 Africa Health Agenda International Conference (AHAIC), set to take place in Kigali, Rwanda from 5-7 March, will convene policymakers, private sector leaders, researchers, advocates, journalists and young people to discuss how to achieve universal health coverage in Africa. While Africa has made great strides in improving health outcomes over the past few decades, far too many people still lose their lives to preventable diseases and treatable illnesses. Furthermore, many countries still face high levels of child and maternal mortality, malnutrition is more rampant across the region, and most health systems are not equipped to effectively deal with epidemics and the growing burden of chronic diseases.
AHAIC 2019 will be an opportunity to assess where we are, evaluate recent scientific developments and lessons learnt, and collectively chart a course forward. Specifically, the conference will focus on innovative ideas and multi-sectoral approaches to:
Improving quality to ensure that all health interventions are safe and effective and do not cause harm.
Increasing access to healthcare in Africa, particularly for the most vulnerable populations, including people displaced by conflict.
Establishing mechanisms to ensure sustainable financing so that the use of health services does not cause financial hardship.
