Live Your Best Life

Africa Outlook - - Welcome -

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!
