Africa Health Agenda International Conference
African Health Business Symposium (AHBS) – Achieving UHC in Africa
The October 2018 African Health Business Symposium in Johannesburg convened 300+ delegates from over 50 countries, mostly African, to learn from various country experiences in implementing Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
The ACS project led an opening-day panel discussion highlighting key findings from its year one consultation phase. Experts from five different countries informed the ACS project about various issues related to the socio-political and financial enabling environments related to advancing UHC.
To learn more about where and when the ACS project is collaborating with UHC change makers, follow us on Twitter @results4dev, using hashtag #ACS4UHC. ACS supports regional and country stakeholders in sub-Saharan Africa in driving change toward UHC by fostering greater accountability, collaboration, and knowledge exchange.

Throughout 2017, ACS held consultations with stakeholders in five sub-Saharan African countries: Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda, Burkina Faso, and Tanzania.
These countries had demonstrated political will for universal health coverage but encountered challenges in making it a reality. Our extensive consultation process allowed us to hear a range of voices, identify key obstacles to and opportunities for UHC, and focus our efforts moving forward.
