Tiago Mora, Regional Manager at Brokerslink

Global broking business Brokerslink has established a new regional team to help drive continued growth and development opportunities for its broker partners and affiliates in Africa and throughout its international network.

The steering team includes representatives from across the continent and reflects the diversity of local business and insurance markets experience that exists. Brokerslink is currently represented in 32 countries in Africa and the team will work to identify opportunities to support their business growth both domestically and internationally as well as providing its global broker network with access to unrivalled local market expertise and experience.

The steering team includes representatives from Cameroon, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa and is headed up by new Regional Manager, Africa, Tiago Mora. Tiago commented;
“Africa is not a single market and our new team reflects this fact. We believe that to be able to maximise the opportunities that exist across the continent it is essential to have access to local experts who understand their individual markets cultural and regulatory landscapes.
It is our aim to create a truly pan-African network that will support all our affiliates across the continent as well as provide more opportunities for the wider global network and our insurance partners to develop their business in the region.

The development of a regional steering team in Africa follows the recent announcement of three new African affiliates to the Brokerslink network.

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
