Why Visit

As the SADC region benefits from strong economic growth, the opportunity and demand witnessed by the healthcare sector is rife. SADC’s clinical laboratory industry is estimated to be the fastest growing region in the presence of developmental opportunities for market expansion. This can be attributed to the presence of developing economies such as South Africa and Botswana, as well as the rising burden of diseases, and favourable government policies within the region. This landscape makes MEDLAB Africa the ideal platform for buyers and sellers to connect and engage, in the convenient business hub of South Africa, which is the world’s fourth best healthcare infrastructure.
