The partnership with Medic Plus will leverage their deep understanding of the Southern African market and extensive distribution network, enabling us to effectively reach patients in Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho, and Zambia. By combining our expertise and resources, we aim to ensure that Gensulin® is readily available to those in need, thereby improving access to quality diabetic care in the region.

The launch of Gensulin® is anticipated to take place in the first quarter of 2025, pending the successful completion of the registration process and regulatory approvals.
SciGen’s primary objective is to meet the growing need for cost-effective healthcare solutions in Africa, and the strategy of a range of Gensulin® and other products will be fulfilling this demand. This strategy offers a significant cost advantage over the branded counterparts without compromising efficacy or safety, making them an attractive option for patients. To ensure widespread availability and accessibility, the plan is to register Gensulin® in a maximum number of markets especially focusing on countries from South, East, and West African regions. It will pave the way for establishing long-term substantial partnerships and distribution networks with local healthcare providers, ensuring needy patients are supplied with high-quality and affordable products. Going forward will be adding more products to explore potential ways SciGen can collaborate to improve healthcare access in Africa.
