Inclusive Healthcare Innovation Summit

LET’S CATALYSE INCLUSIVE HEALTHCARE INNOVATION IN AFRICA!

Every day, thousands of Africans are not receiving the healthcare they need, not even for conditions for which effective treatments already exist. There are multiple challenges in delivering high quality dignified healthcare to the people of this continent but we do not have to be overwhelmed by these challenges. We, as Africans from all backgrounds, have a role to play in strengthening the health systems of our countries. Whether you are a health worker, a student, an entrepreneur or a leader, your ideas can make a difference and collectively, we can achieve positive impact.

Can you reimagine healthcare?

 What is inclusive healthcare innovation?

iHI (Inclusive Healthcare Innovation) is a movement inviting people from all disciplines and backgrounds to be involved in co-creating new and better solutions to address the biggest challenges facing healthcare delivery. Together, we can improve healthcare for those who need it most.

What is your new idea to make healthcare better? Please join us in igniting healthcare innovation in Africa.

Having just returned from the 2014 Brightest Young Minds Summit, it’s very clear that young people across sectors in South Africa are calling for new models of creating meaningful and sustainable impact.
