Statement from ABCHealth
Achieving Universal health coverage in Africa is not a myth, it is a possibility for a continent ranking as the highest disease burden bearers in the world with an overstretched health system. Approaching the issue of health differently is pertinent and expedient for Africa’s Health and this is what the ‘Made to Live Africa Expo’ is all about.
ABCHealth has, over the years and through its Founders – Alhaji Aliko Dangote and Aigboje-Aig Imoukhuede, stressed the link between a healthy population and economic security. Multiple research shows that focus has been on communicable diseases leaving the continent-wide open to the specter of non-communicable diseases, a reality that gets pronounced more now than ever – amongst Africa’s workforce. Cardiovascular-related diseases are one of the largest contributors to the continent’s total death burden and studies have it that since 2019, this disease burden has been and remains the leading cause of death. Without doubt a major component of Africa’s disease burden can be combatted through preventive medicine and a radical change in lifestyle – a personal responsibility for everyone.
Through partnerships and collaborations, like this one between the Coalition and Okhma Global, ABCHealth continues to lead actions designed to impact positively on Africa’s health, its healthcare industry and the economy at large by engaging every stakeholder in the continent’s public and private sectors – governments, businesses, health professionals, development institutions, philanthropists and other critical players including the average individual – with one focus which is to coalesce resources in order to ensure improved health outcomes across the continent.

About ABC Health
The African Business Coalition for Health (ABCHealth) was established as a regional private sector-coalition in recognition of the fact that developing a well-functioning healthcare sector in Africa is a challenge that no single government or organization can solve alone. Creating lasting impact requires collaboration between a range of stakeholders in the public and private sectors, who are committed to developing the right mechanisms to promote accountability, coordination, risk sharing, expertise and disseminate learning.
ABCHealth aims to mobilize private sector interests as well as mobilize resources and capabilities to collectively address the healthcare challenge of the African continent. The coalition unlocks synergies to help companies and their leadership contribute impactfully to meeting national and regional health goals in the context of SDG Agenda 2030 and Africa Agenda 2063 — ultimately improving the standard of living, quality of life, and the overall health and well-being of all Africans.
