Sub-Saharan Africa countries’ health systems are facing difficult challenges to treat a high burden of communicable diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS while at the same time grappling with emerging chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

These chronic diseases are expected to overtake communicable diseases as Africa’s biggest health challenge by 2030. In most countries government underinvests in health care. There is a shortage of qualified health workers; clinical data is unavailable; crucial medicines are in short supply; poor procurement and distribution systems are leading to unequal access to treatment; and the population is unable to pay for services. This undermines the ability of the economies to grow and attract foreign investment. It also threatens political stability and security.
