Zimbabwe Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q4 2017

BMI View:

Zimbabwe's pharmaceutical market presents significant growth potential given itsunderdevelopment. However, a combination of economic and market challenges will ensure that it remainshighly challenging for multinational pharmaceutical firms to invest locally. As such, we expect theZimbabwean government to prioritise the local generic drug industry in order to control costs and boostdomestic drugmaker competitiveness. Besides encouraging greater investment into local drugmanufacturing, the government's pro-generic drug policy on imports will need to be altered in order toadvance local firms' position in the market.
