Ali Pate to deliver keynote speech at NDFF 2024 Conference

The Coordinating Minister of Health and Social Welfare, Professor Muhammad Ali Pate, is one of the confirmed dignitaries billed to speak at the Nigeria Development and Finance Forum (NDFF) 2024 Conference, a high-level gathering of public, private, social, and international sectors leaders scheduled to hold on the 8th and 9th of May 2024, at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.

The NDFF conference is holding in Nigeria for the first time following five previous editions that have been successfully hosted in London, Washington DC, and New York.

The theme of this year’s conference is “The Road to Economic and Social Welfare Transformation,” and it aims to provide a strong backing for a holistic and transformative reform agenda for the Nigerian economy. 

Making these and other disclosures, Jide Akintunde, CEO of Financial Nigeria International and Convener of NDFF, said the confirmation of Professor Ali Pate as a keynote speaker is a mark of progress as the Planning Group for the conference aims to bring together leaders who are critical to the objective of fostering fiscal reform, monetary stability, and social welfare towards achieving sustainable economic progress in Nigeria.

The minister will be speaking on the subject, “Transforming Nigeria’s Population Health: Crowding in Policy, Market, and Social Actions.” 

Akintunde said: “Professor Ali Pate’s keynote speech will x-ray the concept of population health, which encompasses not only the elimination of diseases, but also the intersecting factors that influence health, including social and economic equity.

“A subsequent panel session will see policymakers, financiers, and leaders of healthcare product manufacturing and distribution dissect the challenges of the health sector, proffer practical solutions, and highlight investment opportunities to support innovation and a momentous improvement in Nigeria’s population health,”

Confirming his decision to participate at NDFF 2024 Conference to the Planning Group of the conference, the honourable minister said: “Building an efficient healthcare system that responds to the needs of all citizens requires not only strong policies and effective leadership, but also strategic and coherent investments in the various building blocks that make up the healthcare system. As a government, we are committed to stimulating the sustainable production of health products, making the domestic markets more accessible for demand, and strengthening supply chains.”
