The past three years have proven the need for Africa to be better prepared for the next big health threat. Inevitably, the global challenges of the next decade – climate change, inflation, conflicts, and food insecurity – will have a ripple effect on the continent’s health and change our lives in unimaginable ways.

If we are to overcome these formidable challenges, we need to confront the status quo and prepare ourselves for the future by rethinking our approach to climate change and health. Countries and multilateral institutions cannot afford to continue with a business-as-usual approach. Instead, we must all unite to find inclusive and sustainable solutions that will address climate change, strengthen health systems, scale up health financing in the midst of economic crises and bridge the gap between the global north and south through equity, solidarity, and trust.

This year’s Africa Health Agenda International Conference (AHAIC) 2023 will bring together Africa’s top thought leaders, political figures, innovators, researchers, policy makers, health workers and community mobilisers for dialogue and action aimed at mainstreaming climate discourse into health policy conversations, and vice versa.

Jointly convened by Amref Health Africa, Ministry of Health – Rwanda, African Union and Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC), the biennial conference will provide a platform for Africa to bring global attention to the undeniable link between climate change and health as the world inches closer to the 2030 Global Goals deadline.

Across the world, countries are witnessing the sweeping impact of climate change on the health and wellbeing of their populations - more so in Africa. it is time to move beyond the rhetoric. It is time to act. #AHAIC2023

Vulnerable groups are bearing the brunt of climate change. Excited to see #AHAIC2023 bringing together climate, health, and youth activists to mainstream climate action into health policy to protect Africa's present & future. @RwandaHealth @_AfricanUnion @AfricaCDC @Amref_Worldwide

African countries need to acknowledge the impact of climate change on health and follow through on their climate action commitments. Looking forward to attending #AHAIC2023 to learn what must be done, and where to start! @RwandaHealth @_AfricanUnion @AfricaCDC @Amref_Worldwide

Climate change is growing the global burden of disease, and Africa is at the fore of this health crisis. Can a continent often excluded from global health & climate talks put this crisis on the world’s health agenda? Excited to learn more at #AHAIC2023!

Climate change has cost the world’s most vulnerable countries a fifth of their GDPs, with African countries losing an average of 3-5 % of GDP annually. Come join us at #AHAIC2023 as we map pathways for adapting African health systems to withstand the impacts of climate change.

To achieve climate health justice in Africa & ease the shortfalls in climate mitigation, there is a need for African-based evidence on climate change & its effects on health. Join us as we explore solutions at #AHAIC2023.

Health Financing

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is that sustainable investment in health must be at the core of health systems strengthening to effectively address existing challenges and prepare for future health crises. Learn more at #AHAIC2023!

DYK: Africa accounts for 24% of the world’s disease burden and 16% of the global population, but receives just 1% of global health spending? This must change if global health security is to be achieved. #AHAIC2023

How can African nations mobilize and equitably deploy resources to achieve universal health coverage? Could the answer lie in strengthening regional collaboration? Looking forward to thought-provoking discussions on this and more #AHAIC2023!

Africa needs partnerships that will encourage self-reliance and growth in health product manufacturing. Join us at #AHAIC2023 as we discuss sustainable health financing and partnerships for resilient health systems in Africa.

#AHAIC2023 will create a platform for global thinkers to provide solutions to health financing systems to deliver quality health services. Join us in Kigali to learn more about this and other topics!

Africa is faced with unstainable debt burdens resulting in the lack of ability to mitigate rising food & energy costs and climate change. How can we improve financial pathways and increase the efficiency & effectiveness of health systems? We’ll be discussing this and more at #AHAIC2023.

Open discussions on health financing in Africa are long-overdue. It is time for Africa to find financing initiatives that will work for African health systems and benefit African communities!

Health workforce

A strong health workforce is the cornerstone of every resilient health system. In Africa, strong partnerships can help increase investments in skills development and robust infrastructure to train and retain health workers. Curious? Join us at #AHAIC2023 for more!

Healthcare workers (HCWs) are often unsupported and underpaid. Africa's inability to adequately train, equip and remunerate HCWs has put it at risk of reaching a 6.1 million shortfall by 2030. How can we change this? Join us at #AHAIC2023 to learn more!

Healthcare workers provide essential services to vulnerable populations. If well supported and trained, they can help prevent and mitigate the negative effects of climate change and disease outbreaks. Excited to discuss this and more at #AHAIC2023!

Join us at #AHAIC2023 as we explore solutions to protect healthcare workers, strengthen healthcare systems and move closer to achieving the goal of universal health coverage.

COVID-19 taught us that safeguarding the physical & psychological wellbeing of healthcare workers is necessary to enable them to function optimally. So why are investments in the health workforce lagging? Hoping to find answers & solutions at #AHAIC2023!
