The company will also have a Multi-Vendor Biomedical Engineering Services division to ensure support for healthcare providers across Africa and focus on academic initiatives.

Max Coppoolse, managing partner of IFHA, said, “IFHA has long seen an opportunity to improve access to quality healthcare services by creating a provider of high-quality, affordable medical equipment and services. IFHA is excited to partner with Trivitron and IFC to turn this vision into a reality.”
