Empowering Africa's Pharma Revolution

African nations are on the precipice of momentous changes in the healthcare landscape. Challenges in infectious disease still ravage major segments of the continent while chronic illnesses are emerging as the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. The push for changes, however, has often led to the adoption of partial solutions while the COVID-19 pandemic revealed that the most difficult problems remain unresolved. In this session, we are convening an elite group of professionals, ranging from drug manufacturers, regulators, entrepreneurs, and astute investors to discuss the critical issue of pharmaceutical production on the continent. This session is meticulously designed for decision-makers and innovators seeking to capture tremendous opportunity and make a tangible impact in the healthcare sector.

Innovating in ClimateTech to Drive Sustainable Development

Despite Africa contributing <4% of global greenhouse gas emissions, the continent and its people will be disproportionately affected by the impact of climate change. Innovative ClimateTech solutions are supporting not just emissions mitigation in growing African economies, but also supporting climate adaptation to make African businesses and communities more climate-resilient in the face of extreme weather events and shifting climate patterns. Our panel discussion will also highlight how these solutions are paving the way for economic growth and improving living standards. Join us for a thought-provoking conversation on how innovating and investing in African ClimateTech is driving sustainable growth and competitiveness.
