Penetration in Africa 


Present in African countries

We gather Danish healthcare companies with focus on business in Africa 

How to penetrate the African healthcare markets

Our focus will be on how to penetrate the African healthcare markets, how to get access to the right people; authorities, distributors, hospitals, universities and other relevant stakeholders in the African countries.  It is very important that the work to be done and activities to be carried out in our business cluster – will be in close dialogue with our members.

Within 2019 we are aiming at visiting 1-2 African countries / markets for further investigation.

“In sub-Saharan Africa, infectious diseases such as malaria and HIV/AIDS cause 69% of deaths. Though we can deliver short-term aid and try to develop innovative vacinnes or treatment for diseases, the real issue is the danger of a weak healthcare system. To address this, we must focus on building better healthcare infrastructure in Africa”
