ABOUT AFRICA HEALTH BUSINESS:
Developing key relationships has become an ever-increasingly and more strategic way for business to grow. Strategic relationships allow businesses to cross-promote, build on each other’s strengths, fill in gaps in areas of growth, share intelligence, attract new customers and expand business offerings to existing customers. Additionally, partners can advocate for an organisation’s goals while contributing their own networks, skills, talent pool and assets, allowing the organisation to broaden its impact while accessing new audiences. Recognising the importance of relationships is not difficult, but identifying the right partners, creating the correct mutually beneficial strategic partnerships and managing these – are all challenges.
Where relevant, Africa Health Business brings in the right global external partners and experts to complement internal capabilities. Adding strength to service provision, Africa Health Business has linkages with sector experts across the continent – allowing for the integration of local knowledge, therefore further refining and customising solutions.

The Africa Health Business Symposium (AHBS) is a pan-African conference that sits at the heart of the African healthcare scene. In 2020, via a virtual platform, the AHBS brought together key stakeholders in the healthcare development sector, including influential public and business leaders, experts, investors and entrepreneurs for a series of webinars themed Partnerships for resilient health systems’ – facilitating the sharing of insights and lessons learned.
Africa Health Business believes that investing in Africa’s healthcare sector is not an option – it is a must. It is an opportunity to accelerate economic development and growth, contribute to saving millions of lives and preventing life-long disabilities, and move countries closer to achieving objectives of national poverty reduction strategies and the Sustainable Development Goals. While the current pandemic has put significant stress on the healthcare systems of the continent, it has also provided the base for building stronger and more resilient health systems.
As Africa adapts to a new normal, partnerships in over-stretched health systems will continue to play an important role. The AHBS webinar series for 2021 will consist of seven sessions discussing key areas that are at the center of change. See more about the upcoming sessions
