Pitch World Fast is a consulting, project management and training company specialized in business development.
We help our clients - individuals, corporation, public authorities - get access to the right resources and/or people to reach their growth and development goal in their country and internationally.
In 2016, Pitch World Fast started working on the healthcare sector together the ministry of health of Algeria looking at best practices to improve the healthcare system in the country through the Healthcare Roundtables. In a mission to support Africa’s development and coordination in times of Covid-19, the company launched the Africa Webinars, an initiative taking the form of webinars but which today became a platform for sharing experience, capacity building and strengthening cooperation in health & economy in Africa.
The Africa Health Access Conference: This two-day gathering holds great importance in the realm of African healthcare.
Under the esteemed patronage of the Benin Government, this conference signifies the culmination of extensive efforts, stemming from our Africa initiative and the enlightening Africa webinars.
The Africa Access Conference serves as a launchpad for meaningful dialogue, collaboration, and innovation. It offers a platform for the exchange of insights, the exploration of solutions, and the forging of partnerships that will help shape the future of healthcare on our continent.
An In-Person Convening of Minds 🤝 Our journey began virtually, with the Africa webinars uniting ministries of health from across Africa. Now, we’re poised to meet face-to-face, solidify our network, and jointly address critical health-related challenges.
A Commitment to Change through a White Paper 📄
But the conference is not an isolated event; it marks the beginning of something greater. We’re pleased to announce the creation of a comprehensive white paper. This isn’t just a document; it signifies our commitment to continuity and progress.
We envision this white paper’s recommendations as a catalyst for meaningful change, extending beyond national borders to impact the entire continent and its regions. Our overarching objective? Ensuring accessible healthcare for every African population.
