Healthcare is a critical sector of every economy. The sector faces major challenges across Africa ranging from investment, infrastructure deficits, digitisation and adoption of advanced technologies, poor clinical delivery, demand for quality healthcare, governance, patients access, regulation of counterfeit drugs, low performance, efficiency and effectiveness.

Despite the challenges, the Africa healthcare sector is estimated by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to be worth $35bn per annum. The value of the African pharmaceutical market has been steadily rising and was expected to reach approximately $US60bn by 2020 (McKinsey). Given the sector dynamics, most healthcare organisations, Pharmaceutical companies and providers across the value chain today are undertaking transformations, have radically changed their approach in recent years, redirected investment and made significant changes to improve performance, build capabilities and strengthen best behaviour for growth.

These transformations aim to address both infrastructure, operational systems, people skills and governance. In an industry as labour-intensive as healthcare, success also requires a robust human capital strategy. Improving operation productivity and excellence in healthcare delivery could change these dynamics.

The impacts of climate change are already being felt in communities globally . More frequent and intense extreme weather and climate-related events, as well as changes in average climate conditions, are expected to continue to damage infrastructure, ecosystems, and social systems that provide essential benefits to communities. Future climate change is expected to further disrupt many areas of life, exacerbating existing challenges to prosperity posed by aging and deteriorating infrastructure, stressed ecosystems, and economic inequality. Impacts within and across regions will not be distributed equally. People who are already vulnerable, including lower-income and other marginalized communities, have lower capacity to prepare for and cope with extreme weather and climate-related events and are expected to experience greater impacts.

Prioritizing adaptation actions for the most vulnerable populations would contribute to a more equitable future within and across communities. Global action to significantly cut greenhouse gas emissions can substantially reduce climate-related risks and increase opportunities for these populations in the longer term.
