The African region consists of some developing and underdeveloped countries. The healthcare systems in these countries are still not well structured and stable, due to the lack of essential funds. However, with recent foreign investments, the healthcare scenario is improving in the region. Hence the market in this region, though not large, is expected to grow in the future.
