Swazipharm was birthed in 1985 with a vision to make a difference to the people of Africa. Our company is uniquely known as the Avacare Health Group.

Our innate passion and commitment to deliver timeously has helped us make our mark in the pharmaceutical and healthcare arena. We believe that “Yesterday we were good, today we are better and tomorrow we shall be great”. For us, the journey to greatness is not defined by one man’s success or even one company's success. Rather, greatness lies in our ability to make a difference in the lives of the people of Africa and in the accessibility of our products in every part of Africa.


Dr. Vikramkumar Naik - CEO & Founder

Dr. Naik, an anesthesiologist who started his career in the coalface of African hospitals, created a strategic vision which has led to the success and growth of our Group. His vision began with the realisation that Africa required better quality affordable medication and supplies and dedicated his life to ensure the fulfilment of this objective. His extraordinary personal leadership approach has brought, and still brings, people together. It is through our visionary leaders that today, we as a Group, are able to implement ideas into results, translate dreams into reality and transform challenges into successes, not only with one company or country but across the African continent.
