Healthcare Forum - 190417

"Global Health Eye on Africa: Challenges and Opportunities"

presented by Senait Kebede International Health Consultancy, LLC

The PMI Atlanta Healthcare Forum has 9 planned sessions throughout 2019. Proposed topics include IT & IT PMO in Healthcare, Healthcare SME/Domain Forums such as Clinical, Laboratory, Research, Tomorrow's Healthcare & Government practices/law, Thought Leadership in Healthcare, and Innovation in Healthcare Technology.


As the world becomes more inter-connected, Global health issues dominate the health agenda driving scientific research and innovations to design interventions. There is growing partnership and collaboration across agencies, institutions and countries with the aim to prevent and control diseases and improve health and well being not at national level and beyond geographic boards. Despite the growing evidence for which treatment, diagnostic and preventive measures are needed, there remains disparity in access and utilization of these interventions within countries and across the continents in the world. This session will highlight global health issues, perspectives, challenges and opportunities with a focus on Africa.
