Prof. Ndemo took part in the AHB Series at the event, where he spoke on the session on Increasing Investments for Responsive Health Systems in Africa on June 8, 2023. In his address, he noted that investment in health systems was important because it increased the capacity for the health sector to implement more life saving measures, in addition to providing people with equitable access to healthcare.
