Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
The lowest-income residents of sub-Saharan Africa face more than their share of illness and disease. The region has 11 percent of the world’s population but 24 percent of the global disease burden.
An Abt Associates-led project is connecting health care entrepreneurs in Kenya and Ethiopia to funding and expert advice through the HANSHEP Health Enterprise Fund and networking events.
Improving health in the region is a challenge that must involve the private health sector. In countries such as Ethiopia and Kenya, the private sector provides health care to almost half of the poorest people.
