Ethiopia to host the 5th Annual Africa Hospital Expansion Summit

To help countries implement their health reforms, the World Bank and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria (Global Fund) committed to invest $24bn in Africa over the next 3 to 5 years. The Global Fund’s $9bn commitment for 2017 – 2019 includes $3bn of investments in systems for health such as strengthened procurement systems & supply chains, improved data quality & data management systems, and strengthened human resources for health.

African countries are expected to increase their domestic spendings on health with $65bn to $115bn in the coming 10 years according to WHO.


Ethiopia is among the countries that has been making significant progress in the past decade, and continues to do so: with 156 hospitals and the objective to focus on the much needed skillset training of health workers, the country makes a perfect destination for healthcare related investments. After 4 successful editions in South-Africa, Zambia, Mozambique and Ghana, Noppen Group is hosting the 5th Annual Africa Hospital Expansion Summit in Addis Ababa.

At the event government officials, investors, operators, architects, health bodies, NGO`s and contractors will be meeting medical device suppliers, technology & service vendors, distributors, consultants, banks and regulatory bodies.
