The reforms and partnerships that governments undertake over the next decade will be crucial in improving overall health in the continent” Says Dr Amit N Thakker, Chair of the East Africa Health Platform.Substantial investment will be needed to meet the growing demand – largely from low and middle-income households, which comprise 70% of Africa’s purchasing power.
