African insurer SUNU enters into strategic partnership with global broking organisation

14 October 2019 Brokerslink

Global broking business Brokerslink continues to strengthen its presence in Africa with the announcement of a new strategic partnership with African insurer SUNU Group.

Brokerslink’s brokers and their clients will have access to exclusive wordings and health insurance plans with management delegation, and to SUNU’s specialist knowledge of local markets, multiple regulatory regimes and business cultures.

The partnership will build on SUNU’s and Brokerslink’s strong mutual presence in a number of the Francophone countries in Africa and enable SUNU to expand its distribution relationships into more countries across Africa.

Anne Collette, Director of Business Development for Brokerslink explained the importance of this new strategic relationship:

“As we continue to strengthen our presence in Africa, we felt it was important to partner with an insurer that shared our philosophy and had the expertise and capabilities to support our brokers in delivering excellent products and service to their clients. We have worked with SUNU for many years and so they were the natural choice to establish this strategic partnership.”

Mohamed Bah, Deputy Director for SUNU Group added;


"It became increasingly clear from our existing work together that Brokerslink which, is a unique, ethical and efficient organization, was the ideal partner for SUNU Group. We want to anchor this partnership in the long term and are committed to supporting each of Brokerslink's brokers and their clients on the African continent.

QUESTION

No developing economy has ever built a single-payer complementary NHI equivalent covering the entire population. NHI promises comprehensive care but it is also 100% free at the point-of-service. Is this practical?

ANSWER

It is doable but collaboration is key
South Africa is not in a position to build NHI
The only conclusion possible is that the private healthcare sector is not going to disappear or change
There is little chance that the NHI will be able to receive significant government funding
