Regional Overview

Africa's healthcare system is split between the private and state sectors. In 2014, public health funding accounted for about 48% of all health spending, with differences in various countries. Local production reflects a weak view that is confined to consumables and ordinary goods, and there are a couple of suppliers of high-tech devices. Africa is heavily dependent on medical device imports, and imports account for nearly 90 percent of the global medical device industry, and Chinese manufacturers of medical devices dominate the scenario. Among Africa's regions, South Africa, and Egypt account for 40% of the market. Nigeria, Morocco, and Algeria are other important nations. Collaboration and technological transfer with major global corporations will remain the key strategy for expanding the regional African sector, as can be seen in China's example. The United States leads the South African industry in the fields of orthopaedics, consumables, prosthetics, and patient assistance. However, most consumers of medical equipment are hunting for Asian countries to cut prices.
