With the world’s largest free trade area and a 1.2 billion-person market, Africa is creating an entirely new development path, harnessing the potential of its resources and people. Despite the opportunities a young, growing population present, healthcare in Sub-Saharan Africa remains amongst the worst in the world.

Global health is about worldwide health improvement and reduction in disparities, but not all the work can be accomplished by the public sector alone. Research shows the private sector already delivers about half of Africa’s health products and services. Private providers, including for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises fill an important medical need by offering products and services that are not otherwise available.

Join us for a special presentation about the U.S. Prosper Africa Initiative, followed by a lively panel discussion with U.S. businesses in Global Health-related industries who do business in Africa to explore the intersection of Global Health and Business.
