The dividends of empowering Africa’s female workforce

According to an International Labour Organisation (ILO) report sub-Saharan Africa has the world’s highest proportion (40%) of women who are just contributing family workers and are only supportive of the primary income earner. Only 15% of sub-Saharan African women are salaried (in developed countries it’s around 90%), and for most a job is not about building a career but about survival. In spite of the fact that women play such a key role in the home, and economy, they are not properly recognised and rewarded for their contribution.

How to lower costs in African healthcare and make it more accessible

Dr Mark Britnell: My Three Words for Davos this Year

Universal Health Coverage will be high on the agenda at this year’s meeting, and rightly so. No country can say that it perfectly fulfils the World Health Organization definition of “access to key health interventions for all at an affordable cost, thereby achieving equity in access” and at least 60% of the world’s 192 countries are thought to be a long way off. Currently, more than one billion people lack access to even the most basic healthcare, and over 100 million are pushed into poverty each year through catastrophic healthcare costs.

African economies expecting higher growth than world average

As the leaders of today’s finance functions continue to work hard to boost their relevance and value to the business, they are shifting their focus outward to those financial management activities that contribute the most to better business decisions that improve the bottom line. Their biggest challenges lie in creating the efficiencies needed to gather and process basic financial data and continue to deliver traditional finance outputs while at the same time redeploying their limited resources to enable higher value business decision support activities.

5 steps for closing the “expectation gap” around Africa’s resources

5 steps for closing the “expectation gap” around Africa’s resources

Resource-based industries are not entirely about resources. They are, in large part, about people, and how effectively people from all sectors work together. In this article I will outline why collaboration is vital to growing our African resource industries. Firstly, we must face the fact that African countries are now competing for a smaller pool of global investment capital, amid investors’ suspicions that Africa has not delivered. The “hidden costs” of doing business in Africa – costs related to weak infrastructure, corruption and political instability – have taken their toll on returns to shareholders.

How to lower costs in African healthcare and make it more accessible

Over the past ten years, there has been an unprecedented growth globally – and in Africa in particular – in the number of people rising out of poverty to achieve middle-class status. This population, often referred to as the Middle of the Pyramid (MOP), has a significant disposable income meaning an increasing demand for healthcare. As countries grow wealthier, models of healthcare provision and financing need to adapt to increasing expectations and new demands for healthcare.
