The International Finance Corporation (IFC) is bringing together more than 50 global health-tech innovators along with leading East African healthcare providers to forge partnerships and ultimately help address Africa’s healthcare challenges.
The International Finance Corporation is an international financial institution that offers investment, advisory, and asset-management services to encourage private-sector development in less developed countries.
These innovators will present to an audience of top healthcare providers from Kenya, Uganda, and Ethiopia that serve more than 5 million patients annually at over 250 facilities. International experts will discuss health tech trends and investment themes, while a virtual exhibition hall will house over 50 interactive booths staffed by tech companies from 20 countries.
An Innovation Summit will be taking place online from October 27 to 29, 2020, where selected companies will demonstrate the latest health-tech solutions supporting operations during COVID-19 and innovations in point-of-care diagnostics, artificial intelligence in clinical data, maternal and child health, and more.
The summit’s matchmaking event is part of the TechEmerge accelerator program, an IFC initiative designed to pilot and scale new technologies in vital sectors in emerging markets.
