With the East African Medical Diaspora organisations and Ministries of Health Partnering with NHS Health Education England, Wellcome Trust , and the British Medical Journal , This 6TH UK EAST AFRICA HEALTH SUMMIT 2022 is one day event which will provide a multi-channel global health communication platform that brings together Government, Medical Researchers , pharma industry, global health enthusiasts, country representatives of ministries of health, medical students , business, academia, policy and civil society, for an exciting day of expert panel discussions, interactive working groups and participant-led workshops.

It will be impossible to achieve national and international goals – including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – without greater and more effective investment in health systems and medical research. While more resources are needed, East African governments are also looking for ways of doing more with existing resources. They are seeking innovative ways of harnessing and focusing the energies of global health communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the private sector.

The East African community faces many health challenges including global security linked dangerous pathogens like Covid-19 , Ebola, and other epidemics, such as Malaria, making the health system strengthening agenda clear and concrete. Ensuring that the East African community has the capacity to respond to current health issues and identifying future challenges is a priority. The 6th UK- East African Healthcare Summit 2022 aims to bring together large delegations of UK and East African government officials, policymakers, medical research and development institutions, senior hospital directors & CEOs, and healthcare professionals to the United Kingdom to engage and network with international healthcare experts, investors and solution providers.

MMV's André-Marie Tchouatieu, Director of Access and Product Management, will be speaking at this event on seasonal malaria chemoprevention.
