As a leading African distributor of specialist medical equipment and health products, Pyramid Group is combating a lack of access to medical resources and overburdened healthcare systems in Africa, as well as an increasing prevalence of diseases such as cancer and diabetes.
With distribution in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Mozambique, Ethiopia and Burundi, Pyramid Group is the largest supplier of specialty cardiac and orthopaedic equipment in East Africa. As a result of its growing distribution networks for these products, Africans who previously had to travel overseas for treatments, such as hip replacements and having pacemakers fitted, can now have these procedures closer to home.
