Despite the progress achieved in improving results and impact on Africa’s health outcomes during the MDGs era, Africa still faces numerous health threats, including HIV/AIDS, TB and other communicable and non-communicable diseases, high maternal and child mortality rate etc. Civil society and community groups in Africa have been responding to these threats by strengthening community systems, primary health care, and collective advocacy to urge African national governments to invest 15% of their national budgets to health, following the Abuja Declaration in 2000. In this side event, we introduce these efforts by Africa’s civil society to promote inclusive and participatory approach for Africa’s improved health outcomes.
