Market Access Africa is a mission-driven healthcare organization that works with the public, private and third-sector to design and deliver transformational healthcare solutions for Africa.
We envision an Africa where world-class healthcare is the standard, and where deep-rooted inequities in access to lifesaving technologies and services are a thing of the past. To solve complex problems on the ground, we curate and advance bold, new ideas to accelerate access to the best innovations and appropriate solutions for Africa’s health systems and markets.
We deliver extensive knowledge and expertise on health systems and markets to help our partners solve complex challenges across the African continent.
We are daring to raise the level of ambition for what is possible in African healthcare. We do this by partnering with organizations across the healthcare ecosystem to develop bespoke solutions that recognize and leverage the uniqueness and dynamism of the different African countries where we work.
Our work on product introduction and commercialization brings together the firm’s expertise in commercial life science, healthcare markets, and public health. We work with product developers and innovators across the value chain to accelerate and streamline the product introduction pathway.
We work with public and third sector healthcare organizations to build and implement world class programs, increase capacity, improve systems, and deliver transformational results.
We leverage our deep networks with policy-makers and key opinion leaders across the continent to convene novel, game-changing partnerships that design bold transformative policy campaigns and initiatives, mobilize resources, and influence change.
Health System Enablers
We help our partners to deploy cutting-edge technologies and solutions that have the potential to radically expand access to lifesaving products and services in the public and private healthcare sectors.
Our healthy policy program advanced a more equitable global health governance system
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, when global disruptions reduced access to health facilities, including testing services for HIV, our evidence-backed strategies helped to increase access to self-testing kits for HIV and other associated services across target countries in Africa.
Our team of seasoned experts combine experience at leading healthcare organizations, and lived experience across the African continent. This drives the way in which we shape innovation and drive change through challenging the status quo and thinking boldly about a new era in African healthcare.
