Since 2012, AHB has been incubating various healthcare federations across Africa. The private sector delivers upwards of 50 percent of all healthcare in Africa. Despite its significant and growing role, it struggles to be heard at a national, regional, and continental level, to access resources, and to participate in collaborative efforts. The Africa Healthcare Federations strives to improve health outcomes for all Africans by fostering a supportive policy environment, Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) and private sector advocacy.
In 2016, AHB launched the Africa Healthcare Federation at its inaugural Africa Health Business Symposium as an umbrella body that would bring together the 27 private federations under two fully formed regional federations, The West African Healthcare Federation (FAOSPS) and the East African Healthcare Federation (EAHF). AHF strives to amplify the voice of the private sector, facilitate cross-federation learnings, and promote public-private partnerships to improve health outcomes for all Africans. AHF is recognized by the African Union and the World Health Organisation as their private sector engagement partner.
The Africa Healthcare Federation consist of:
AHB is currently incubating the following federations: Liberia Healthcare Federation, Healthcare Federation of Ghana, South Africa Healthcare Federation and the Kenya Healthcare Federation.
