The Albright Stonebridge Group’s newest Analysis on East African Health Care presents four key takeaways
• At a time of declining government revenue, East African states are under pressure to respond to Covid-19 by increasing revenue collection while also making long-term investments in the health sector.
• FY2021 health budgets in East Africa offer cause for measured optimism, as governments make targeted health investments despite recent underinvestment.
• East African governments are undertaking ambitious investments in public health even beyond Covid-19 response efforts, including in cancer research and treatment and in the rollout of universal health care schemes.
• Private sector stakeholders have an opportunity to bolster government investments in advanced care and non-communicable disease treatment by enabling reliable access to global health supply chains and by addressing specialized needs like laboratory capacity.
