The journey started at the United Nations General Assembly in 2017. Aliko Dangote, co-host of the Bloomberg Summit which held on the side lines of the General Assembly, had announced that his Foundation was partnering GBCHealth to establish an Africa-inspired intervention for health to be championed by Africa’s growing business community.

Charged with bringing African business leaders, funders and individuals together to harness resources, funds and goodwill towards easing the health burden on the continent, ABCHealth is poised to lead the efforts in bridging the gap in health funding across Africa.
