Access bank affirms commitment to healthcare transformation in Africa


Access Bank has reaffirmed its dedication to driving positive change in healthcare across Africa, emphasizing the importance of collaboration and innovative financing models.

The announcement was made during the Medic West Africa 2024 event, organized by ABC Health in collaboration with Informa Markets.

Themed “Healthcare Investments in Africa: Mobilizing the Private Sector to Drive Healthcare Investments in Africa,” the event brought together stakeholders from various industries to discuss strategies for advancing healthcare infrastructure and achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Ralph Opara, Group Head of the Commercial Banking Division at Access Bank Plc, underscored the significance of public-private partnerships in addressing the healthcare investment gap. Opara emphasized that the burden of the health sector cannot be borne by the government alone and advocated for innovative financing models and strategic partnerships to bridge this gap.

Highlighting the importance of collaboration between the public and private sectors, Opara emphasized its role in driving innovation, improving healthcare accessibility, and ensuring sustainable development across the continent.

Access Bank’s partnership with the Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria (PSHAN) resulted in the launch of the Adopt-A-Health Facility Program (ADHFP). The program aims to establish global standard Primary Healthcare Centers (PHCs) in each of Nigeria’s 774 Local Government Areas (LGAs). To date, over 180 PHCs have been adopted across the country through this initiative, demonstrating Access Bank’s commitment to enhancing healthcare infrastructure and accessibility in Nigeria and beyond.
