Healthcare in Sub-Saharan Africa remains the worst in the world, with few countries able to spend the $34 to $40 a year per person the World Health Organization considers the minimum for basic health care.
And despite widespread poverty, an astonishing 50 percent of the Africa region's health expenditure is financed by out-of-pocket payments from individuals.
Based on research in a new report, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) estimates that over the next decade, $25-$30 billion in new investment will be needed to meet Africa's health care demand.
Meeting the demand can deliver strong financial returns and has an enormous potential for development impact, by expanding access to health services for the poorest people and reducing the financial burden on governments.
