About us

Investor interest in Africa's healthcare sector is on the rise, driven by factors like the growing prevalence of non-communicable diseases and the expanding middle class. Governments are responding by fostering public-private partnerships and improving regulations to attract investments. The African Continental Free Trade Area is also poised to facilitate cross-border trade in healthcare products and services.

In the health sector, opportunities abound, particularly in pharmaceuticals, telemedicine, and diagnostics. Africa's pharmaceutical manufacturing, currently at only 3% of global output, presents significant growth potential. Telemedicine platforms leveraging mobile technology can address healthcare access gaps, especially in rural areas. Additionally, investment in laboratories is crucial for building robust health systems.

To delve deeper into the potential of private sector involvement in Africa's healthcare, ABCHealth is hosting a panel session at the Medic West Africa event in Lagos, Nigeria, from April 17-19, 2024. The event brings together government officials, business leaders, healthcare experts, and investors to explore innovations, foster connections, and navigate the evolving healthcare landscape.
