Declaration on Accelerating the Achievement of a Healthier Africa
Nairobi, Kenya, 5-9 March 2017
We, the organisers, keynote speakers, panelists, scientists and researchers, leaders from government, multilateral agencies, the private sector, civil society, development partners, youth delegates, advocates for health and the media, came together at the Africa Health Agenda International Conference held in Nairobi between 5-6 (Youth Pre-Conference Forum) and 7-9 March 2017 (main conference) to discuss, debate and share state-of-the art scientific knowledge, evidence, policy and practice.
The Sustainable Development Goals provide a new framework for global health. The Africa Health Agenda must be a distinct part of this global agenda for change. We therefore focused on:
1. Generating homegrown solutions to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals across the continent.
2. Sharing scientific research findings, evidence and best practices addressing health and health systems in Africa.
3. Identifying and discussing gaps and challenges in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals in Africa.
Over the past five days, we have once again seen the power of homegrown innovation in addressing the unique challenges of achieving universal healthcare in Africa.
