This session will feature Cash Advance, a digital loan product that reduces transaction costs and improves access to working capital. The second session will focus on a unique approach of combining financing with quality improvement; reducing investment risks and allowing for measuring the impact of healthcare investments. The second part of the tour will feature two live demo’s by industry experts on digital solutions for healthcare in Africa.
