The 2023 Conference on Public Health in Africa concluded on Thursday in Lusaka with a call for African countries to establish resilient health systems.

The conference discussions should spark renewed energy and commitment to constructing healthier and more robust health systems, said Zambian Vice President Mutale Nalumango while addressing the challenges in the health sector.

Encouraging participants to leverage the knowledge gained and foster connections, Nalumango stressed the importance of translating discussed issues into actionable plans across the continent to fortify public health systems.

Zambia’s Health Minister Sylvia Masebo said the discussions would propel progress in public health across Africa, and that the conference would help identify common public health challenges and seek interventions to enhance the continent’s health security.

Held under the theme "Breaking Barriers: Repositioning Africa in the Global Health Architecture," the conference brought together about 5,100 delegates, with an additional 30,000 participating virtually.
