Leading change for health in Africa: The challenge posed by the critical shortage of health workers
Chair: Kovin Naidoo
In recent years significant advances have been made to improve health in Africa but weak health systems and particularly the critical shortage of healthcare workers remain a major constraint to bringing better health care to millions of Africans. It is within this overall health context that we seek to establish sustainable eye care services.
Inspired by addresses from African leaders in health and development, an all-African panel presents and discusses challenges and solutions to building sustainable health and eye health services in Africa, with a particular focus on addressing the critical shortage of African health workers generally and eye health workers specifically.
