Pharma Logistics Africa 2020

GRV Global proudly presents the 2nd annual Pharma Logistics Africa (PLA2020) forum being held in Nairobi, Kenya on 27-28 October.

In recent years, Africa has experienced multi-billion dollar jumps in the size of its pharmaceutical industry, with the opportunity for public-private health partnerships rising exponentially (and proving crucial). Annually, millions of preventable deaths exist due to lack of adequate vaccine supply. Timely access to healthcare remains a priority, however, there is no guaranteed stock of the medicine required.
Accounting for the continent’s continued population growth, swift urbanisation and a growing middle class (including an increase of lifestyle diseases such as cancer and diabetes), an advanced and sustainable pan-Africa cold chain is vital to support long-term development.
PLA2020 will be host to approximately 300 delegates and exhibitors; a select offering of key stakeholders participating in high-level plenary discussion, dedicated networking sessions, social functions and most importantly, 1-2-1 matchmaking meetings used to cement collaborations and create partnerships!
Pharma Logistics Africa 2020 will address Africa’s medicine challenges head-on; participants will discuss priority needs in-person whilst showcasing innovation throughout GRV’s deal-making format. As the world’s hottest continent, climate control for medicine transport is critical to its population’s wellbeing. This is no mean feat – rising temperatures and minimal rainfall, vast distances and a widely varied landscape (including remote locations), unreliable power and data monitoring, all demand the very best in solutions and partnerships to move the sector forward.

Who should attend?
The key to creating lasting collaborations is engagement. At a GRV Global event you will engage all participants directly whether that's during the plenary sessions, around the venue at one of our more social networking occasions/exhibition or, through our pre-scheduled afternoon 1-2-1 matchmaking sessions. Those wishing to initiate or further their healthcare related operations across Africa simply MUST attend Pharma Logistics Africa. Equally, Government, UN, U.S. & EU, NGO and manufacturer representatives, think-tanks and academics should grasp the opportunity to meet hundreds of link-minded colleagues in a safe, relaxed and stimulating environment.
