A panel of experts examine the impact of Covid-19 and the measures that must be taken to prepare for what lies ahead.

In this exclusive webinar, a panel of experts from the healthcare sector discuss the impact of Covid-19 on public and private healthcare enterprises, as well as how the sector supports the overall health and wellness of communities and the economy as a whole.

Liza Eustace, Sector Head of Healthcare at Absa CIB leads the panel, which includes Dr Sandile Buthelezi, Director General of the Health Department, Adam Pyle, SA CEO of Life Healthcare Group, Dr Ryan Noach, CEO of Discovery Health, and Mark Wadley, Portfolio Manager at Visio Capital.

  • The healthcare sector is at the centre of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a critical sector for Absa, and essential to the alignment and wellbeing of everyone in South Africa and the continent as a whole.
  • Has the lockdown been effective, and how has it impacted the sector? Drawing from previous healthcare crises, what lessons can be learnt to weather the current storm, even if it is unprecedented?
  • Share prices of private healthcare businesses have dipped since the pandemic hit. What does the future hold and what can listed companies do to re-evaluate how healthcare is delivered in a post-Covid-19 world?
