The International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations (IFPMA) and Speak Up Africa launch the first edition of the “Africa Young Innovators for Health Award” at the Galien Pre-Forum Africa session focused on Youth Leadership.
Prof. Awa Marie Coll-Seck, Minister of State and President of the Scientific Committee of Forum Galien Africa, who is also a Jury Member for the Award and Speaker at the launch event says “The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us more than ever how healthcare professionals and social workers are on the front line in responding to major health challenges. This multisectoral and community response contributes to building a strong and resilient health system. However, despite the increased investments in human resources and the many innovative financial mechanisms put in place across the continent, the work of these professionals and the health systems as a whole have been severely put to the test. We must support them.”
