1 in 10 medications sold in Africa are fake or substandard. (W.H.O 2017)

75% of medical facilities in Nigeria owned by single owners

Supply Chain issues drive medical facilities to purchase medications from the many open drug markets. If not, they have to work with too many distributors and manufacturers to fulfill all of their medication and consumable needs.



Medsaf is a curated medication marketplace to brings medications directly from manufacturers to the doorstep of hospitals and pharmacies across Africa. We are a one-stop shop for medications and consumables. Our technology platform facilitates procurement and brings value added services such as credit facility, inventory management, and logistics. We use the data that we get from medication needs across Africa to help manufacturers improve their offering to the African public.
