The Africa Health Security Alliance Initiative
Bringing health security actors together to connect and collaborate, to foster positive & direct impact towards stronger health security in Africa
The AHSA® Initiative
The AHSA® initiative is a health security advocacy movement connecting governments, NGOs, financiers, donor organizations, suppliers, manufacturers and other key stakeholders in the healthcare industry to share information and collaborate in mobilizing healthcare resources. The aim is to leverage data and technology to convene information that will assist in building resilient health security and achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) for Africans in the wake of COVID-19.
Why Health Security and UHC?
In the wake of COVID-19, a major health security problem has been exposed. This comprises of shortage of essential healthcare products, lack of enough financial resources to manage existing disease burdens while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, inefficient healthcare procurement processes, lack of collaboration between healthcare stakeholders among other critical elements needed for building health security and UHC.
Goals of the Initiative
Working Together to Build Healthcare Resilience
We need to point the conversations towards substantial action! The AHSA® Initiative is bringing together a united voice to the campaign for health security in Africa. You will provide an invaluable contribution to the alliance by supporting the continent in meeting its UHC goals through this system that aims to;
- Convene a strong virtual community comprised of high-level influencers, decision-makers and contributors to health initiatives in Africa
- Deploy AI-driven technology that will support disease surveillance, essential product demand trends tracking and just-in-time procurement of essential healthcare products critical to managing diseases that are identified and classified as a concern to the continent
- Provide a linkage platform that will avail the most comprehensive health security referral network and contact that will automate linkages of interests and solutions
- Build a strong knowledge base and virtual communities that will constantly engage and share ideas that will catalyze more homegrown solutions, investments and interventions
