The world today is facing the devastating COVID-19 health crisis that has posed a global risk in all economies. This has undoubtedly necessitated the critical need for preparedness and implementation of sustainable health across all health systems. Over the past decades, the African health system has faced significant challenges in sustaining health care delivery which has, unfortunately, been worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic.
A report from the World Health Organization shows that the consolidated average system performance index in the Africa region is 0.49, implying that systems are only performing at 49% of their possible levels of functionality. Countries’ performance scores range from 0.26 and 0.70. All the indices for the performance dimensions are underperforming, with system resilience and access to essential services doing worst.
Sustainable global health entails a careful adoption of innovative strategies committed to improving the lives of people, safeguarding individuals, and improving the community’s well-being. It involves providing preventive care systems adapted to the evolving health challenges of today and the future. Therefore, achieving a sustainable healthy Africa is very crucial to the development of African economies. It is against this framework that the Health Policy and Research Division of the Nkafu Policy Institute lodged at the Denis and Lenora Foretia Foundation is organizing this forum.
