AFRICA HEALTH AGENDA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

2030 Now: Multi-sectoral Action to Achieve Universal Health Coverage in Africa

5-7 March 2019 • Kigali, Rwanda

#AHAIC2019

The Africa Health Agenda International Conference (AHAIC) is the leading convening on Africa’s health priorities.

Every iteration of AHAIC builds on the success of the previous one to bring more nuance and action to conversations on health in Africa. The 2017 conference, which was held in Nairobi, Kenya, brought together over 1000 stakeholders to discuss systems and innovations needed to enable Africa to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. AHAIC 2019 will convene stakeholders from across sectors and around the world to take forward critical conversations initiated in Nairobi to explore what it will take for Africa to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2030.

Fast Facts on UHC in Africa

Momentum for UHC in Africa is at an all-time high and most African countries have already integrated UHC into their national health strategies.

But much remains to be done if Africa is to achieve UHC by 2030:

HIV/AIDS remains the leading cause of death for adults in Africa and more than 90% of all malaria deaths occur on the continent.

Non-communicable diseases are set to become the leading cause of death in Africa by 2030.

11 million Africans are pushed into extreme poverty each year because of out-of-pocket health expenses.

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:

Increasing access to health care in Africa for everyone, including the most vulnerable populations.
Improving quality to ensure that all health interventions are safe and effective and do not cause harm.
Establishing mechanisms to ensure sustainable financing so that the use of health services does not cause financial hardship.
Strengthening accountability measures to ensure transparency at all levels and improve health system performance, leadership and return on investment.
