Swecare Foundation, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Embassy of Sweden in Addis Ababa and Business Sweden invite you to participate in the official business delegation to explore business opportunities and strengthen your contacts in Africa's fastest growing economy.
The delegation is the first ever Swedish healthcare delegation to the largest economy in the East African region with huge demands within healthcare. The country is struggling with a triple burden of disease; communicable diseases, non-communicable diseases and trauma.
The government of Ethiopia is working on strengthening the healthcare system with extensive plans outlined in the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTPII) and Health Sector Transformation Plan 2020. Therefore, the spending on healthcare is expected to grow rapidly, boosted by population growth, rising disease burden, government focus on expanding healthcare infrastructure, reduced poverty levels and greater awareness of preventive healthcare.
The following areas have been identified as areas of market potential for Swedish Healthcare companies in Ethiopia:
Healthcare Management Systems (e-Health)
- Health Information Systems
- Mobile Health
Medical Products & Technology
- Diagnostic equipment
- Therapeutic equipment
- Prescription medicines
- Generic medicines
The delegation to Ethiopia is designed to meet the following objectives:
- Get first-hand insights on market opportunities and plans within health care: This will involve engagement with and presentations by public and private key stakeholders, including high level officials in government agencies and at the Federal Ministry of Health
- Meet with key decision makers and enablers tailored to your company’s business: This will include B2B meetings with key actors for your business, a chance to present and showcase your company at Swedish Ethiopian healthcare conference
- Get access to broader contact network in the country: Luncheons and reception will be hosted with presence of key decision makers, leading health providers and financiers
We hope that you will take this unique opportunity to meet with key decision makers from the ministries, authorities, hospitals and medical facilities in Ethiopia in order to discuss how your company can contribute to further growth in the country.
