Africa faces the heaviest burden of endemic diseases in the world; with just over 15% of the global population, the continent accounts for 50% of maternal deaths and 67% of HIV/AID cases. Out-of-pocket health spending in Africa remains excessively high compared to other continents, illustrating that the need to finance the continent’s healthcare systems was pressing well before COVID-19 took hold. Nevertheless, the pandemic exposed underlying systematic weaknesses inherent in the healthcare sector on the continent, emphasising the urgent need to develop core strength in healthcare across the entire value chain to ensure that these systems can become more accessible, sustainable, and resilient.

Spearheaded by the increased strength of Kenya, Tanzania, and Rwanda’s national economies, East Africa has become the fastest growing region of the continent in recent years. However, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with the Russian invasion of Ukraine has derailed the region’s growth trajectory. Rising food prices have become a key area of concern regarding food security, especially as the region is grappling with drought. An estimated 55 million people in East Africa are expected to be food insecure, up from 42 million in 2021 (World Bank, 2022).

Nevertheless, the agriculture, construction, and energy sectors in East Africa offer the potential to yield inclusive growth. The rise in global oil prices has resulted in greater interest in Africa’s gas reserves as sources of energy alternatives; the liquified natural gas project in Tanzania has sparked renewed investor interest. Equally, Kenya’s underdeveloped mining sector is experiencing growth from 10.9% of GDP in 2021 to 22.6% in 2022.
