Through Amref these entrepreneurs will have access to detailed knowledge about healthcare in Africa and access to Amref’s extensive local and international network of stakeholders, donors and investors.
To co-create shared-value partnerships between these entrepreneurs and Amref programs to jointly achieve sustainable health impact and scale in Africa.
