AHBS VII – The Role Of The Private Sector In Advancing Men’s Health In Africa
November 24 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm SAST
To focus on the advancement of health indicators in Africa, governments must prioritise both women’s and men’s health. The public sector has the legal mandate to provide stewardship, guidance, and coordination, to create an enabling environment for the implementation of health systems strengthening activities that are focused on women’s and men’s health. Nevertheless, there is a significant role to play for the private sector as a multisectoral approach is imperative to improve the health of women and men on the continent. The 24th November #AHBS2022 event ‘The role of the private sector in advancing men’s health in Africa’ will feature discussions that will put a spotlight on men’s health in Africa.
The effort to improve health must focus on the health needs of both sexes and adjust to the differences between them. Attention to men’s health for example will be particularly important in tackling the global epidemic of non-communicable diseases, which are likely to affect more men than women and to affect men at a younger age.
AHBS VII on 24th November will be a full-day highly interactive hybrid event, in Nairobi, allowing both in-person and virtual participation, welcoming eminent health experts, business leaders, government officials, and development partners to discuss, share information and provide lessons learned on key areas that affect men’s health in Africa.
