South Africa and Africa is facing a myriad of challenges in delivering care to those who need it most. Now more than ever, innovation is required to develop solutions that can improve the delivery of healthcare in Africa in an inclusive, effective and affordable manner. These solutions must transcend current challenges in the system to improve health outcomes for patients but also to change the routines, responsibility and values of our health workers responsible for delivering the care.

Igniting Healthcare Innovation in Africa
Healthcare in South Africa and Africa is facing a myriad of challenges in delivering care to those who need it most. Now more than ever, innovation is required to develop solutions that can improve the delivery of healthcare in Africa in an inclusive, effective and affordable manner. These solutions must transcend current challenges in the system to improve health outcomes for patients and also to change the routines, responsibility and values of our healthworkers responsible for delivering the care.
How can we ignite inclusive innovation in Africa?
On 29 & 30 January 2014, local and international healthcare leaders, practitioners and innovators will gather in Cape Town for the first Inclusive Healthcare Innovation Summit.
Are you an innovator or influencer in the government, private health industry, academia, not for profit or in the community?
This gathering will be a platform inviting the active participation of the whole health community to share, learn about needs-based innovations in different dimensions and to co-create new solutions that can bring about health systems transformation.
Don’t miss this dymanic and stimulating event to connect with strategic partners and thought leaders in this field.
Together we can pioneer new solutions for a healthier African future.

Passports and Visas
Every visitor to South Africa must have a valid passport with at least 2 completely empty pages and a remaining validity of at least 6 months.
At the time of preparing this web page, passport holders from 70 countries, including USA, Canada, UK, Japan and the EU can visit South Africa without a visa. However, please verify current visa requirements with your travel agent or your nearest South African diplomatic mission.
Where visas are required, they are never issued at South African ports of entry, and airline officials are obliged to insist on visas before allowing passengers requiring visas to board a flight bound for South Africa.
Visitors with passports not having the necessary empty pages, validity or visa can be denied entry — through being prevented from boarding an aircraft bound for South Africa or through refused entry and deportation on arrival in South Africa.
For an official visa letter please contact the conference organisers: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yellow Fever Certificates
To prevent the spread of yellow fever, South Africa requires all travellers journeying from yellow fever risk countries,orwho have transited through a yellow fever risk country, to show proof of yellow fever vaccination by means of a valid yellow fever vaccination certificate. Please read more aboutyellow fever requirementshere, and please ensure that you have certificate if it is required. Failure to have the necessary certificate can result in denial of permission to board a flight bound for South Africa or refusal of entry and deportation upon arrival in South Africa.
