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.
