The healthcare sector in Africa is now estimated by the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to be worth $35bn per annum. There has been a sharp rise in demand for better quality healthcare from the growing middle class.

Despite the challenges of supply and distribution, the value of the African pharmaceutical market had climbed to $20.8bn in 2013, and Mckinsey expect it to reach approximately $US60bn by 2020. This event will be an opportunity to discuss the key drivers impacting the healthcare sector in Africa and answer the following questions:

  • Big Pharmaceutical companies have radically changed their approach in recent years; how are the large pharmaceutical companies supporting the health system in Africa?
  • Equity fund investment is on the rise; how does the financial sector assess risk and what are the key issues that are preventing investment into the sector?
  • How can the government encourage the private sector to increase investment into the healthcare system in Africa?
  • What are the future prospects of the healthcare industry in Africa?
