ISLAMIC FINANCE: AN ALTERNATIVE SOURCE OF FUNDING HEALTHCARE
INFRASTRUCTURE IN AFRICA

DATE:  14th – 15th September, 2021 | MODE: VIRTUAL

As an organization committed to fostering the Islamic paradigm of economic development in Africa, the Africa Islamic Economic Foundation (AFRIEF), in collaboration with Glocal Healthcare Services Private Limited, is organizing a two-day Virtual Summit on September 14th – 15th, 2021 on a topic of growing relevance in recent years: Islamic Finance: an Alternative Source of Funding Healthcare Infrastructure in Africa.

The theme of the event is: Transforming Healthcare Infrastructure to Achieve Universal Health Coverage and Sustainable Development Goals.  The goal of the Summit is to explore a realistic alternative approach to financing healthcare infrastructure in Africa. The event, therefore, provides a platform for leading Islamic finance and healthcare scholars and academics, key stakeholders, policymakers, researchers, students, investors, healthcare practitioners and other leaders of society from within Africa and beyond to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, as well as to critically examine the purposes, theory, practice, structure, and institutions of the rapidly developing field of Islamic finance and how it can support the development of healthcare in Africa.

TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED

It is difficult to invite papers on a precise list of topics in a virtual Summit of this nature; it would be equally difficult to organize a program of systematic discussions without some written papers and presentations. Submissions are however, invited from a number of perspectives. The list below is an indication of the areas which topics of papers or presentations, empirical or theoretical can cover.

  • An Overview of Africa’s Healthcare Sector
  • Healthcare Infrastructure Development in Africa: an essential strategy to achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • Digitizing Healthcare: Opportunities for Africa
  • Re-imagining Health Economics in Africa: The Islamic Perspectives
