In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the power of technological innovation to help achieve universal health coverage and a variety of global health goals. COVID-19 has also underscored the importance of addressing health disparities and highlighted how crucial these innovations will be to prepare for and prevent future global health emergencies.

Health workers, medical practitioners, entrepreneurs and other healthcare leaders in Africa have been driving impactful innovations, specifically in the digital and tech spaces. Now is the time to recognize and invest in them.

How can tech innovation help eliminate barriers to healthcare services and bring diverse voices into critical conversations? How can we amplify successful innovations in Africa to bolster greater investment and global support? What will it take to bring knowledge and best practices from Africa to other regions?

Join the Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation for a Front Line in Focus webinar that brings together frontline health workers, health data researchers, multi-stakeholder partnerships, and more for a conversation on how the African continent is paving the way for achieving our global health goals through innovative success.

This 60-minute Zoom event will feature representatives from nonprofits and healthcare organizations working on the ground throughout Africa, researchers leveraging big data to predict health trends, and African-led investment partnerships addressing systemic financing challenges for primary and community health programs.
