Shalina's values reflect what is truly important to us as individuals and as a company. They guide and inform everything we do and are the foundation of our company culture. These core values transcend over time, regardless of our size. So no matter how big Shalina becomes, we will always be a company where the best people can reach their full potential and, in turn, help millions of people in Africa lead healthier, happier lives.

We achieve this by sourcing from WHO-approved production facilities in India and China and by focusing on our first-class distribution expertise.

Shalina Healthcare is privately owned and we have been operating in Africa for more than thirty years. We are headquartered in Dubai and have operating offices in Nigeria, Zambia, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola, Ghana, Kenya, Central African Republic, India and China. We employ over one thousand people worldwide.

Shalina Healthcare is a market leader and we offer a wide basket of more than two hundred and fifty products.  We participate in both the prescription and over-the-counter categories in a broad range of therapeutic groups, including anti-malarials, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and nutrition.  Our range includes both generic and branded generic products.


Over the last thirty years, Shalina’s reputation as a quality healthcare provider in Africa has been well accepted by the medical community, who has no hesitation in prescribing Shalina products to their patients. We work closely with the local communities to help people live longer and healthier lives. None of this would be possible without the immense contribution of our dedicated employees.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide pharmaceuticals that are in fundamental demand, within a framework of Quality, Affordability and Availability.


We make our products widely available. We achieve this by owning and operating a Shalina depot in every major city in each of our markets. This ensures that our products are always in stock, have a deep penetration in the market and are sold at a fair price.


We ensure our products are affordable by the general public. We achieve this by integrating our value chain. We have and will continue to forge strong and long-term partnerships with our suppliers in India and China. We also manage the supply chain through to the Shalina depot in each of our markets in Africa.


We supply our customers with high quality products. We achieve this by ensuring that the raw and packing materials that go into our finished product are sourced from reliable well established manufacturers. In addition, the manufacturing factories that make our products adhere to world-class quality control processes.

Our Quality Promise

We ensure that products manufactured and distributed by us, consistently meet predetermined quality specifications and our customer expectations. We stand committed to strictly comply with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) in conformance with national and international standards. We believe in continual improvement of our products and processes through training, innovation and active involvement of our employees.
