Healthcare Global (Africa)

CDC Group plc

Cancer is an increasingly large healthcare burden in sub-Saharan Africa, killing over 500,000 people a year and rising. Today, cancer patients in Africa face a 70 per cent mortality rate with few, outdated treatment options. There is also limited availability of advanced chemotherapy drugs. As a result, in East Africa alone, over 2,000 medical tourists leave annually for cancer treatment, typically having been diagnosed at a late stage. HCG has treated hundreds of African patients in India and believes that it can improve outcomes and affordability by providing local treatment.
