Morningside were once again honoured to sponsor the UK East Africa Health Summit 2022, which looked at improving the healthcare of African communities and strengthening private sector engagement in the region, post covid.
The international summit was hosted at the British Medical Association’s HQ in London, where global leaders came together, including a number of African government ministers, senior civil servants and high commissioners; alongside representatives from the House of Lords and senior NHS delegates.
Our Chairman, Dr Nik Kotecha OBE DL, was proud to deliver a rousing speech on global communities’ healthcare needs, before taking part in a panel Q&A session on supporting global communities during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Dr Kotecha also spoke about Morningside’s rich history of being founded with the mission to make ‘quality healthcare an affordable and accessible reality throughout the world’.
This has led to Morningside supplying quality medicines directly to African countries by working with ministries of health, and through large aid agencies such as UNICEF, The World Health Organisation (WHO), MSF and the Red Cross.
Today, Morningside remains one of the UK’s leading suppliers of a wide-range of quality medicines as Aid to lower-middle income countries.
Dr Nik , said: “We were once again delighted to support this landmark international summit, where political, health and private sector leaders from the NHS and East Africa come together to share ideas, knowledge and to offer healthcare support to East African communities.
“The annual event seeks to improve the healthcare provision of East African communities and build collaborations and partnerships with NHS and Private sector organizations. This is vital to improving healthcare systems and to continue access of high-quality medicines.
“For over 30 years my company, Morningside Pharmaceuticals, has supplied high quality UK medicines directly to African countries by working with Ministries of Health, as well as through global Aid organisations. I hope this year’s conference continues to deliver the healthcare improvements in East Africa, which are already making such a huge difference to the lives of the people and communities living there.”
