There is a lack of in-country skilled healthcare professionals across Africa. Small-scale training initiatives have taken place in many instances, but the main challenge remain to develop and fund educational pathways that are self-sustainable in the long term. Specialised career paths should also be designed to incentivise upskilling and make practice in Africa an attractive options for professionals.

The objective of the chamber is to identify and address challenges to create sustainable academic pathways for healthcare professionals at the national and regional levels across Africa. By facilitating exchanges of experience and designing common initiatives, the chamber aims to establish a roadmap for policy-makers and professionals looking to ensure that diabetes diagnosis and care is appropriately staffed in the long term.

The action plan for this chamber is under discussion. If you would like to participate in its formulation, consider joining our next event.
