It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that we welcome the launch of ADHN. The Africa Digital Health Networks (ADHN) initiative made its grand debut on 19th October 2023 at the Africa HealthTech Summit in Kigali,Rwanda.
“I was delighted to be present in Kigali at the launch. Enthusiasm can be temporary, unless the infrastructure to establish, maintain and sustain is put in place.
I have been appointed to the Task Force to support the mission of ADHN and to support it through the ECHAlliance – The Global Health Connector.
I have accepted the role of Global Engagement Partner to ADHN on behalf of the ECHAlliance, we have proposed actions for our initial phase. Tangible measures are exactly what we need to implement and build the foundations of the new entity and fulfil the mission that it has been set out to accomplish and of course momentum is key” Brian O’Connor, Chair at ECHAlliance
