Imagining a new future for health systems in Africa
How can Africa, a continent that has 54% of the world's communicable diseases but only 2% of the world's doctors, develop a healthcare system that is both efficient and effective? Healthcare consultant Mathieu Lamiuex believes emerging economies could outperform developed nations' healthcare systems by "leapfrogging" over their inefficiencies and deeply embedded mistakes. By creating an innovative and adaptive system based on modern innovations, Lamiuex believes we could do much more with much less.
