Breakfast Meeting - Healthcare Systems in East Africa - 26th March


Event ended.

Let's talk Health Systems in East Africa

The French Chamber of Commerce is pleased to invite you to its upcoming breakfast meeting on Healthcare Systems in East Africa, in partnership with the French Embassy in Kenya.


Tuesday 26th March

7.30 am until 10.00 am

While the right to healthcare is recognized in the Constitutions of a majority of countries in the region and/or is part of the priorities of national development strategies, access to healthcare through quality infrastructure remains a challenge. However, long-term opportunities exist to support the digitalisation of the sector and the provision of modern medical equipment and infrastructure, in a context where the majority of countries in the region wish to achieve Universal Health Coverage by 2030.

Join us as we discuss access to quality care in East Africa, challenges faced by stakeholders, and sectoral opportunities for private sector investment with our panel of expert speakers!
