Healthcare in Africa
Healthcare in Africa brought together 150 influential healthcare stakeholders from government, providers, suppliers and patient groups to explore the key issues around healthcare systems in the continent.
The 2013 summit focused on identifying healthcare solutions designed to meet the needs of patients – rather than the needs of doctors, governments, companies or donors.
Patient-centric approaches are starting to become mainstream in developed healthcare markets, where they are coming to be seen as the best way to make good healthcare available to everyone at a manageable cost. Could the same be true in Africa or is taking the patient perspective an unaffordable luxury for most countries?
