The healthcare sector in Africa is showing signs of remarkable improvement as the quality of hospitals and the availability of qualified doctors has dramatically improved over the last few years. By making the transformation from traditional medicine to a modern and well structured healthcare system, many African countries have been able to meet the growing demands for quality healthcare services for their people.

The Council for Health Services Accreditation for Southern Africa (COHASA) has been accrediting many hospitals under its jurisdiction that meet the applicable predetermined and published standards. However, Africa’s healthcare industry is characterised by a huge division between the private and public sectors both in terms of facilities and funding. Perhaps the biggest problem facing the public sector currently is the rising incidence of HIV/AIDS, which is and will continue to place considerable strain on the public health system in many African countries.

As a result, there exist immense opportunities for the supply of a wide range of hospital equipment, instrumentation, machinery and allied medical products. Most of the requirement s of the healthcare sector in Africa are imported from various countries around the world. Being a price-sensitive market, African buyers are always on the lookout for high quality, competitively priced goods to meet their requirements.

All government efforts as well as the public and private hospital sectors in Africa are dedicating their energies towards making healthcare more accessible and affordable for the general population of Africa.

GPI is working with Pharmaceutical/healthcare companies to assist in the delivery of cost effective drugs and medical products to developing countries.  The introduction of generic drugs and medical products vastly reduces the cost to the consumer or service agency.

GPI are also working with NGO’s in the healthcare field to assist in their strategic planning process, funding and monitoring and evaluation.
