|Description||SAPHEX is the only dedicated exhibition and conference focused solely on supporting and developing the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry in South Africa, and across the continent of Africa. Our aim is to bring all parts of the sector together so that new partnerships can be created, new ideas can be forged, best practice experience can be shared, and business can ultimately be done. All under one roof, and across two very exciting days, at the Sandton Convention Centre in November 2017.
Saphex will be held under the theme, “Continuing development of the African Pharmaceutical Industry: Forging ideas for the future composition of the sector”.
Aiming to explore the current composition of the industry in Africa, by inviting several experts in their respective fields to give their opinion on where the future of the market may lead. The approach that companies pursue will hinge upon their individual goals. Inevitably companies will need to decide how to satisfy contending stakeholder demands while pursuing sustainable growth in a competitive market.
The Conference will incorporate several key topics into the two day agenda, some of which are listed below;
• Innovative methods for ordering and delivery of medicines.
• Promoting local ownership of manufacturing facilities.
• Use of technology to improve health outcomes.
• National Health Insurance – an assessment so far.
• The key areas needed for improvement in the pharmaceutical delivery chain.
• Education and training in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.
The event was devised in response to feedback from our partners who had experience working in the Sub-Saharan pharmaceutical sector as well as the South Africa pharmaceutical industry. With no leading events in the region for pharmaceuticals, Saphex aims to help the sector by facilitating a meeting of all the key players in the region.
