MBAs in Healthcare in Africa 2017. The healthcare industry is one of the most diverse and dynamic industries in the world. Access to healthcare on the other hand is a right under many constitutions around the world, Kenya and East Africa included, and indeed its effective provision is dependent on the existence of proactive policy and legislative framework, infrastructure, demographics, epidemiological factors among others. Its efficient provision is however more dependent on the size and quality of its healthcare workforce.
