An initial order for Foley catheters has been shipped to Zambia, primarily intended for the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka (UTH).
“We initiated our market activities in Africa just over a year ago and this work is now bearing fruit. We will have a strong market presence in Southern Africa and establish our business in growing economies with large populations, with special emphasis on South Africa and Zambia. The initial order from Zambia is primarily intended for the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka, the largest hospital in the country with more than 1,600 hospital beds. What we have achieved this far is beyond our expectations,” says Johan Rugfelt, CEO at Bactiguard.
