Saturday, February 4, 2017
Targeted investments in infrastructure, workforce and improved governance are key to transforming the heath sector in Africa, said the head of the Health and Education Investment Team at the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Biju Mohandas.
Speaking at a continental forum held in Nairobi on Wednesday, Mohandas said robust public private partnerships (PPPs) are an imperative to help bridge financing gaps in Africa’s health sector.
“There are alternative financing models African countries should harness to boost healthcare financing. Adequate financing is key to unlocking the huge potential of the healthcare industry in the continent,” said Mohandas.
