COVID-19 pandemic has caused the loss of millions of lives, disrupted livelihoods of billions, global healthcare systems and the economies. As well as reducing further loss of life and getting the pandemic under control, the  introduction of  COVID-19 vaccines present a greater challenge than ever in developing countries with weak infrastructure.

Africa represents an emerging opportunity for investment within the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors, in view of its sizable population, rapidly growing economy and stable political environment. The continent has huge untapped potential and the main drivers of expenditure growth include the large burden of communicable diseases, rise of non-communicable diseases, ageing population, increasing urbanisation and rising income levels. Currently, Africa imports more than 80% of its pharmaceutical and medical consumables, only 20% are manufactured in South Africa, Kenya, Morocco and Egypt. African governments are proactively promoting the development of the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors , facilitating foreign direct investment into the sectors most than ever.

Join us for the Virtual SSCG Africa Healthcare Forum to hear our conversation and learn Investment Opportunities in Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare in Africa on Thursday 21 January 2021.
