Presenting Institutions

CelebrateLAB® West Africa will once again feature presentations from companies, National Public Health
Institutes, funders, hospitals and research institutions highlighting strategies for implementing innovations in care and research strategies focused on diseases of interest to Africa. CelebrateLAB® West Africa has added this showcase to the program because of interest from institutions in reaching potential partners, donors, and opportunities on the continent and beyond.

There will be slots for up to 20 presentations to occur in 10- minute slots. Additionally one on one meeting space will be available on a first come, first served basis.

The time is right to highlight researchers and the renaissance of a life sciences market in Africa, as we see…

  • Movement towards regulatory harmonization by organizations like the African Medicines Agency, which is an opportunity for an environment that fosters credible partnerships.
  • Non-communicable diseases are on the rise along with the burden of emerging infectious disease
    around the world.
  • Market trends in urbanization will demand strong and more resilient healthcare systems
  • Higher demand for diagnostics and access to local supply chains for prevention and response that has the potential to impact global health.
