A broad approach to healthcare in Africa
Our Integrated Solutions
Avacare Health has adopted a clinician’s approach to healthcare in Africa. Our focus is on the overall disease burden within Africa as a continent.
Our commitment is to improve the state of health of all Africans by providing a full suite of high quality, cost effective healthcare products geared at addressing the most acute diseases and health risks facing the African people.
Avacare Health believes in giving back to society through education and training. As such, we help to arrange regular CMEs and workshops to further the knowledge of the continent’s medical care providers, who, in turn, are able to educate their patients.
The regulatory standards in Africa are quickly catching up to the rest of the world. Regulation is an important focus for the Group and over the years we have developed a highly skilled team of regulatory pharmacists to manage the dynamic and complex regulatory environment.
Our local presence in all the major SADC markets also gives us the advantage of making use of the SADC regulatory body collaborations. This enables us to fast track dossiers simultaneously in multiple regions, which reduces the time taken for new and improved pharmaceuticals and technologies to become available in the region.
We aim to be the leaders in the development and management of intellectual property. From humble beginnings as traders, the Group has transformed itself to becoming an advanced marketing company with an ever-growing quality intellectual property portfolio.
What needs to be done
The scourge of HIV and the inherent opportunistic infections such as TB, malaria, other URTi’s and neoplastic growths that follow have not only placed a large financial cost on poverty stricken government but also have far reaching social implications on families affected by these diseases.
There are six major tenants to be tackled in order to beat this dreaded disease; AIDS. These can be separated broadly into the following categories:
- HIV & AIDS PHYSICAL PREVENTION
- HIV & AIDS CHEMICAL PREVENTION
- MALARIA TREATMENT
- ANTI-CANCER TREATMENT
- HEART DISEASE & DIABETES TREATMENT
- EDUCATION & ADVOCACY
