Dear Friends and Colleagues,

2020 has been an extremely busy, but strange year for Anadach - working with old and new clients in several countries, and collaborating with new partners including several multi-national companies during the most serious pandemic in recent history completely disrupting the entire healthcare space and economies across the globe.

We believe that the COVID19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the healthcare space. Some trends common to several countries include increased use of technology, increased recognition of importance of health workers, reduction in discretionary/elective healthcare, conversations around increased financing of healthcare and improved governance. Others more specific to Africa are the increased institutional funding for healthcare, increased demand for improved health infrastructure and equipment, assessment of current supply chains and re-assessment of viability of local pharmaceutical production. As you think about these trends and other opportunities, do feel free to approach us for new assignments, innovative ideas, projects or staffing requirements to improve health for all. 

We invite you to participate in our upcoming webinar on smarter governance structures and practices to strengthen the performance of public and private hospitals, and health services organizations in the countries of Africa on 8th December 2020, Register here!

The next year promises to be as busy, with Anadach co-hosting several seminars (sorry now webinars) with different partners.

We are hosting/partnering on these events as we believe it is an excellent way to network with industry peers, develop new relationships and collaborate on common goals as we move to a post-COVID world. We look forward to seeing you!

We wish you and yours a healthy and safe end of the year, and a calm 2021.

The Anadach Team

Launch of Anadach Governance Academy Program

Effective Governance practices for stronger health systems consists of the mobilization, deployment and utilization of resources, through policies and regulations, for promoting and protecting the health of the population. Good governance provides organizational decision-making that allows for a more effective use of healthcare resources resulting in improved health outcomes.

The role of insightful health sector governing bodies is essential to achieve the health, employment, and financial goals of the organization or community. The members of the governing bodies make decisions that define policies, rules and regulations. They help support both clinical and financial oversight and accountability for the enterprise’s leadership as they expand access to health care and health gain. These sessions will provide practical insights for modern board work across Africa, and other continents. The webinars will also address new insights on approaches to minimizing common obstacles to good governance in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). These include understanding of the roles and responsibilities of board members; the difficulty to recruit talented and ethical people for board membership; a lack of support for successful decision-making, as well as inadequate information and orientation for successful engagement.

Anadach Group invites you to participate in our webinar series on effective board structures and practices for stronger health systems. These interactive learning experiences are part of our launch of the Anadach Governance Academy designed to support smarter governance in African health care organizations. Our goal is to share knowledge and practices of high performing governing bodies and leaders to enhance the development of stronger health systems and better health outcomes.

Anadach Covid-19 Programs

Africa faces an unprecedented challenge with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the population, economy and health systems. The relatively weak health systems coupled with the economic shutdown has resulted in a crisis that severely affects the health sector. Anadach has been active with two programs running simultaneously.

We are working with P2P, a non-governmental, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care and reducing the spread of diseases, particularly in Ethiopia and in diaspora communities on a COVID-19 in Africa Series. Click here to view previous webinars

We also hosted with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a virtual meeting series titled "Promoting Innovations in HealthTech to highlight potential solutions to support the COVID-19 response in Nigeria". The series gave founders, entrepreneurs and promoters a platform to present early stage innovations to potential partners, investors and funders. To conclude the event, Anadach hosted a learning event to share key lessons and take-aways from the series with an audience of interested stakeholders.
