Add to Calendar September 21 5:30 pm September 21 7:00 pm America/New_York Demanding Better Health: Accelerating Global Health Security through Sustainable and Community Led Solutions

This event is by registration only

Global uptake of Covid-19 vaccines is impacted by complex demand barriers including limited access to vaccination centers, waning concerns about Covid-19 infection, and limited trust in health systems. Across Africa, increasing vaccination rates for Covid-19 and beyond remains an urgent priority for health and government leaders. However, spaces to share knowledge, develop tailored strategies and align on best practices are few and far between. At this event, we’ll hear from speakers about what it will take to ramp up Africa’s vaccination rate and build sustainable immunization systems moving forward. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Hon. Minister Dr. Jane Aceng, Minister of Health, Uganda
  • William Asiko, Vice President of the Africa Region Office, The Rockefeller Foundation
  • Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO, Gavi The Vaccine Alliance
  • Dr. Githinji Gitahi, Group CEO, Amref Health Africa
  • Rashid Mang’anda, Maternal and Child Health Coordinator, Ministry of Health Malawi
  • Dr. Mercy Mwangangi, Chief Administrative Secretary, Kenya
  • Dr. Ahmed Ogwell Ouma, Acting Director, Africa CDC
  • Dr. Rispah Walumbe, Health Policy Lead, Amref Health Africa

Who should attend: Ministers of Health, government representatives, health workers, donors, multilateral institutions
