Health security is no longer a single country agenda. It is now clear that to be effective, sustainable and more progressive in strengthening global health security and building resilience – particularly in Africa – there needs to be more collaboration, connectivity and deliberate information exchange.
This high-level virtual event will serve as the launch of CCA's new Health Security and Resilience Initiative, which will bring together U.S. and African business executives and senior government officials including Ministers of Health, as well as leaders from multilateral institutions. This event will showcase CCA's vision for the initiative and explore the policy lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and inform a path forward for U.S.-Africa collaboration on health security and resilience on the continent.
Speakers will look both behind and ahead at lessons learned, best practices and policies that support enhanced healthcare financing and strengthening service delivery for improved disease response and management preparedness, implementation of Universal Health Coverage and increased trade and investment in Africa's health sector.
Attendees will include CCA members and non-members, African Diplomatic Corps, USG, African governments, Africa health sector stakeholders including multilateral institutions and multi-donor initiatives.
