Urban Integration for Universal Health Coverage in Smart African Cities
- (04:30am - 05:30am EDT)
More Information:
In Africa, chronic diseases are projected to cause 57% of deaths and cost $2.4 trillion annually by 2030. As the continent rapidly urbanizes, there’s a pivotal opportunity for cities to champion universal health coverage (UHC) and embed public health initiatives within their infrastructural blueprints. Our Philippe Guinot will moderate a panel discussion and Q&A on integrating smart city design with the broader objectives of UHC, drawing from the successes of CARDIO4Cities, The Challenge Initiative, and City Cancer Challenge. This session will promote action to ensure African smart cities not only leverage technology for advancement but also significantly improve public health outcomes and tackle chronic diseases. Free but participants must register in advance.
