Healthcare systems around the world have and are undergoing huge challenges, especially in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many countries in Africa still experience the strain of the pandemic. Focusing on strengthening the healthcare systems as a whole is the key as a longer-term measure. Global cooperation and public-private partnerships also play a big role and will be discussed during the upcoming forum.

We have put together an exciting program covering a high ranking  introductory plenary  starting with the lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and how to strengthen healthcare systems in Africa in the panel discussions focusing on the following topics:

-    Financing and Investing in Healthcare and Scaling up local value chains in Africa

-    Partnerships in Strengthening Health Systems

Together with high level experts and partners from Africa, Germany and Europe, the German-African Healthcare Forum serves to foster business partnerships on the African continent in addition to creating a platform for exchange and networking between African and German key actors within the field of healthcare.

Due to the special situation regarding COVID-19 the 8th GAHF edition will take place online making the conference even more accessible to hundreds of companies from all over the world.
