We would like to honour and highlight the importance and power of women in global health as the health sector is a major employer of women globally. Additionally, the event aims to increase networking and cooperation between the female participants from the forum. We have invited high-level speakers to give valuable input at the breakfast meeting.

Please note that only participants of the 6th German-African Healthcare Forum (registration and program HERE) are eligible to participate in the business breakfast!
