For companies in the healthcare sector

Companies in the healthcare sector in Norway can join our business cluster. We have min. 4 meetings a year and 1-2 business delegations to selected countries in Africa a year. 


Penetration in Africa 


Present in African countries

We gather Norwegian healthcare companies with focus on business in Africa 

How to penetrate the African healthcare markets

Norwegian companies seems to have an untapped potential of doing healthcare business in Africa. Based on our work with our Danish Healthcare Business Cluster, experience shows that co-creation, knowledge-sharing and the right network leads to more business. 

We are very delighted to kickstart our Healthcare Business Cluster in Norway as well. Our focus will be on how to penetrate the African healthcare markets, how to get access to the right people; authorities, distributors, hospitals, universities and other relevant stakeholders in the African countries.  It is important that the work to be done and activities to be carried out in our business cluster will be in close dialogue with our members and the participating companies.

“In sub-Saharan Africa, infectious diseases such as malaria and HIV/AIDS cause 69% of deaths. Though we can deliver short-term aid and try to develop innovative vacinnes or treatment for diseases, the real issue is the danger of a weak healthcare system. To address this, we must focus on building better healthcare infrastructure in Africa”
