Kenya Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q1 2015 - New Market Report

New Healthcare research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWire) -- 11/17/2014 --The rising non-communicable disease burden will boost demand for prescription medicines to treat chronic diseases in Kenya. However, we believe drugmakers cannot employ their developed state business models to market medicines in a country that has traditionally focussed on the treatment of infectious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV. Besides challenges related to diagnosis, care and treatment, there is a lack of understanding and knowledge about diseases such as diabetes and cancer among healthcare professionals and the general population, and a perception that these diseases are not as critical as other s affecting the country. Furthermore, limited government contribution to healthcare and low affordability levels create the need to establish structured channels through which companies can boost the use of their products - particularly as in an emerging market like Kenya, the demand for medicines is not equal to the uptake of medicines.
