Zambia Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report

BMI View:   The share of the government's 2015 budget allocated to health care is lower than in 2014, and this, combined with the political uncertainty following President Sata's death, raises concern as to whether the country will succeed in its missions to improve healthcare provision and reduce mortality from communicable diseases. Nevertheless, the government has pledged to provide 2,000 more health workers over the coming year, and this can only improve patients' access to healthcare.

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals: ZMK1,393bn (USD227mn) in 2014 to ZMK1,595bn (USD251mn) in 2015; +14.5% in local currency terms and +10.9% in US dollar terms.

  • Healthcare: ZMK8,746bn (USD1.42bn) in 2014 to ZMK9,983bn (USD1.57bn) in 2015; +14.1% in local currency terms and +10.5% in US dollar terms.

Risk/Reward Index

Zambia ranks 26th in our Q115 Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index (RRI) for the MEA region.

For 2015, ZMK4.5bn (USD707.5mn) has been allocated to health, out of which ZMK268.2mn (USD42.2mn) is for the construction and rehabilitation of health infrastructure in various parts of the country. In addition, ZMK753.5mn (USD118.5mn) has been set aside for the procurement of essential drugs and medical supplies, while ZMK52.5mn (USD8.3mn) will be for the recruitment of more than 2,000 health officers.

  • President Michael Sata died in October 2014. Although this was not entirely unexpected, due to his recent ill health, it raises political and economic uncertainty, with questions surrounding who will succeed Sata on a permanent basis.

  • In October 2014, The Central Statistical Office disclosed that Zambia's maternal mortality ratio has declined from 591 to 398 deaths per 100,000 live births. The CSO's deputy director, Sheila Mudenda,...
