Developing sustainable Healthcare in Senegal

ABiQ predicts Senegal will require 34 hospitals by 2030 to meet the needs of a growing population. This will require an investment of $1.7 billion.

Senegal, officially the Republic of Senegal, is a country in West Africa. Senegal’s population will grow by more than 28% over the next decade, from 16.7 million to 21.0 million, based on forecasts done by ABiQ. This increase in population will require an increase in expenditure on healthcare as Senegal will require additional healthcare infrastructure.

Healthcare infrastructure in Senegal

Senegal needs to build more hospitals, educate, and train more doctors and nursing staff to improve the overall healthcare sector. At the moment, most of the infrastructure is based in the capital Dakar. ABiQ predicts Senegal will require 34 200-bed-hospitals by 2030 to meet the needs of a growing population. This will require an estimated investment of $1.7 billion.
