On Thursday the 31th of May the Health and Global Policy Institute, Japan Center for International Exchange, Friends of the Global Fund, Japan will be jointly hosting the symposium “Investments in Health: The Key to Economic Development in Africa”.

With interest in African markets growing, the challenge of sustaining healthy workforces and consumer markets is becoming more and more critical to businesses around the world. What can corporations do to promote health in Africa? What is the impact of a healthier population, and how can it be leveraged for increased economic growth? This symposium will look at health as one key to
achieving sustainable development in Africa by inviting business leaders from Africa and Japan and representatives of several international organizations to talk about their own experience with public-private partnerships for health and to offer some
suggestions for how corporations of all industries and other sectors can approach health in Africa.
