Between 3rd and 9th of October, AIHT Sagam was represented by Dr. Khama Rogo in Burkina Faso. During this visit, Burkina Faso’s Hon. Minister for Health gave an opening address to the high level workshop on Strengthening Health Systems for UHC in Koudougou, 100km outside the capital, Ouagadougou.
The team also visited several non-state hospitals and a big incinerator project for medical waste run on a public private partnership (PPP) basis. AIHT’s lessons were shared with the participants, including how to make PPPs work to reduce maternal and newborn mortality. A strong Burkinabe team will visit Kenya soon, led by the Minister for Health.
