- An increasing number of investors are choosing to allocate capital to the Nigerian healthcare sector as an undersupply of beds relative to other African countries demonstrates an attractive opportunity.
- At least 800 beds are in the pipeline over the next 4 years as various investors back tertiary facilities that aim to keep $1.6bn of outbound medical tourism spend within Nigeria.
- Primary healthcare still requires investment as most new projects are focused on slowing medical tourism which is driven by the upper echelon of demand. Healthcare investment strategies need to integrate primary health care as this is where scale can be achieved.
