Delivery to Southern Africa


Bactiguard delivers an order of some 20 000 products for infection control to Southern Africa, comprising both Foley and central venous catheters for the healthcare system in Angola.

In July 2014, Bactiguard expanded its market presence to seven countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and made an initial delivery of Foley catheters to Zambia. The current shipment is the first intended for the healthcare system in Angola and comprises both Foley and central venous catheters for infection control.

“We are very pleased that we have established a firm foothold in Southern Africa. These emerging economies face major challenges related to healthcare associated infections and multi resistant bacteria. Our market breakthrough in Africa proves that Bactiguard can provide solutions which are not only effective in preventing infections, but also cost-effective,” says Niels Christiansen, CEO.
