About Africa Health mission

Growth Company International Trade or the North West Trade Team is inviting companies to join us on a trade mission to Africa Health on DIT's behalf.

Taking place in Johanesburg, South Africa with over 600 companies from just under 70 countries and over 10,500 professionals attending in 2019, Africa Health has been the biggest healthcare event across the continent. The event offers a wealth of opportunities to UK companies from exhibiting, health conferences to networking and partnering.

Joining our mission, your company will have a valuable opportunity to be alongside and presented at our UK pavillion at the Arfica Health Exhibition. You will be able to meet your potential partners and customers. These ranges from public and private hospitals, local and global healthcare businesses, distributors and manufacturers.

"With the investment and spending on healthcare in Sub-Saharan expected th double in the next 10 years", the authorities and goverments in the continent are looking to attract and build a working relationship with the private sector. This provides huge potential for UK healthcare businesses to enter the market and expand their international growth.
