Group Business Trip Medtech to South Africa

Discover the evolving healthcare landscape in South Africa during a group business trip to South Africa, organized by Switzerland Global Enterprise and the Swiss Business Hub Southern Africa.

The country's healthcare sector is undergoing significant changes, creating opportunities and challenges in the Medical devices and health technology market. With a quadruple disease burden and disparities between the private and public sectors, innovative solutions are needed. The proposed National Health Insurance (NHI) program aims to achieve universal healthcare coverage, offering potential advantages and better access to healthcare services. This trip provides a unique opportunity to understand the South African healthcare market and explore the Medtech industry dynamics. Scheduled for 16-20 October 2023, the trip includes networking opportunities, stakeholder engagements, and a visit to Africa Health, the largest healthcare fair in the region. Join us on this fact-finding mission to South Africa to explore opportunities and partnerships. The business trips will consist of two legs, with visits to both Johannesburg and Cape Town, providing participants with a comprehensive overview of the South African Medtech sector.
