Investment opportunities rise in Nigeria’s health sector – Oxford Business Group reports

7 min read

A focus report, which highlights the opportunities for investors to contribute to the development of Nigeria’s health sector through bridging funding shortfalls for planned infrastructure projects and supporting other segments with high growth potential, has been produced and released by Oxford Business Group (OBG).

OBG is a global research and advisory company with presence in over 30 countries, spanning Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas. It is recognised internationally as a distinctive and respected provider of on-the-ground intelligence on the world’s fastest-growing markets, termed The Yellow Slice, in reference to OBG’s corporate colour.

Titled “Nigeria Health”, the report provides in-depth analysis of both the health sector and pharmaceutical industry in an easy-to-navigate and accessible format that includes key data and infographics. It also includes an interview with the Director General, National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, and contains in-depth case studies and viewpoints from key industry players, such as Fidson, Codix, GSK, Merck and Bayer.

The report explores the key role that public-private partnerships (PPPs) are expected to play in bringing a range of health care projects to fruition and helping Nigeria to achieve its ambitious goals for the sector, which include increasing the number of hospital beds to nearer the global average bed-to-population ratio of 2.7 per 1,000 people.

It also considers the potential Nigeria has to boost local production capacity for consumable items, such as syringes, bandages and dressings, needles and catheters, and, in turn, reduce its import bill.

The opportunities emerging in medical technology are another focus. In this section, OBG provides in-depth coverage of the digital solutions disrupting health provision worldwide, which include extending care to underserved areas and facilitating remote diagnosis and treatments.

The report shines a spotlight on Nigeria’s pharmaceutical industry, tracking the growth stories of key companies with a presence in the country and featuring contributions from high-profile industry representatives.

With Nigeria’s reliance on China and India for pharmaceuticals evident at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, OBG considers the scope for increasing local production capacity. It also notes the part that Nigeria’s Five Plus Five-Year Validity policy is expected to play in increasing partnerships between multinational pharmaceutical firms and local manufacturers.

In addition, the report examines the topical issue of counterfeit drugs, looking in detail at Nigeria’s efforts to address this and related challenges through monitoring and enforcement solutions.

OBG’s Managing Director for Africa, Karine Loehman said that, while Nigeria’s health sector continues to feel the knock-on effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and other pre-existing challenges, the government had made notable progress in meeting key health indicators in recent years, while a successful PPP model bodes well for investors eyeing opportunities in infrastructure and other segments showing potential.

“Nigeria’s expanding population and underlying fundamentals make it an attractive proposition for the international investment community”, Loehman said. “With the pandemic having created new opportunities for expansion and innovation, and public funds limited, our report points to a health sector ripe for development, offering opportunities that range from capital projects to the provision of high-quality medical services at new and existing facilities”.

The report on Nigeria’s health sector forms part of a series of tailored studies that OBG is currently producing, which includes ESG Intelligence and Future Readiness reports, and other highly relevant, go-to research tools, such as country-specific Growth and Recovery Outlook articles and interviews.

The report is available for download at the following link: https://oxfordbusinessgroup.com/news/focus-report-ongoing-effort-strengthen-nigeria-health-sector.

Through its range of products – Economic News and Views; OBG CEO Surveys; OBG Events and Conferences; Global Platform, which hosts exclusive video interviews; and The Report publications – as well as its Advisory division, OBG offers comprehensive and accurate analysis of macroeconomic and sector-level developments for sound investment opportunities and business decisions.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious
    what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
