Live Your Best Life
Striving to ‘be the best’ is a theme encapsulated within Africa Outlook’s philosophy, as is epitomised by the host of industry-leading companies that grace each month’s publication. However, striving to ‘do what’s best’ for others is a whole other prospect, and this month we are headlined by a Company that looks to balance both of the above ambitions.
Bonitas Medical Fund’s personable approach to healthcare fulfilment and upliftment has been a comforting everpresent in South Africa for 36 years; evolving from an initial membership base comprised of black civil servants, to the widespread open medical scheme it exists as today.
Amid challenging conditions and in the face of increasing societal pressures to alleviate the strains of poor health on a growing population, the Company continues to encourage all to “live their best life”, and the Company’s Principal Officer, Gerhard van Emmenis spoke with our Deputy Editor, Phoebe Calver about Bonitas’ approach to medical solutions in the present day.
“At Bonitas we have 12 plans available, each designed to perfectly meet the needs and budgets of South Africans from all walks of life,” he emphasises.
Continuing the theme of ‘being the best’, we continue this month with our fourth instalment of post-Mining Indaba profiles focusing on the sector’s exciting pan-African recovery. This time around it’s the turn of Mincon West Africa, Gecko Namibia (Pty) Ltd and Buffalo Coal to share their success stories and views on the wider industry; leading nicely into an overview of the recent Sahel and West Africa Mining Conference and Exhibition which took place in London in early May, which facilitated refreshing perspectives on African mining from experts outside of the continent.
Rounding up our monthly showcasing section are sustainability pioneers, LC Packaging; iconic Jo’berg retail outlet, Cresta Shopping Centre; Australian infrastructure specialists, Xaris Developments; and our old friends from the oil & gas space, Harlequin International (Ghana) Limited, to name a few.
So we sign off this May with a reminder to live your best life; an apt message that Africa Outlook would like to especially extend to Nigeria, Senegal, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia as their football teams head to Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Enjoy the issue!
