Report Published: "Zimbabwe Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q1 2016"

Although the government's ambition to develop a national health insurance scheme to facilitate universal health coverage is a positive step, Zimbabwe's healthcare system , in its current state, is heavily dependent on donor funds, owing to past failures to sufficiently finance its health sector. Global recession is presenting a significant risk as the availability of funds from foreign organisation s dries up. Political instability and a grim economic outlook enforce our view that Zimbabwe will remain an unattractive market for multinational drugmakers.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals: USD361mn in 2014 to USD380mn in 2015; +5.2% in US dollar terms. Forecast unchanged from last quarter .

Risk/Reward Index

In BMI's Risk/Reward Index for Q116, Zimbabwe scores 25.3 out of 100, down from last quarter's score of 27.8. The country is ranked 29th out of the 31 markets surveyed in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, just below Nigeria (26.0) and above Uganda (24.7). Zimbabwe will remain one of the least-attractive pharmaceutical and healthcare markets regionally and globally, due to the elevated political, economic and social risks, as well as the lack of finances for adequate healthcare provision and capacity utilisation.
