OUR GROUP LEADER
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.

Executive Chairman and Founder
Dr Vikramkumar Naik
Dr Vikramkumar Naik is the founder and current Group Executive Chairman of the Avacare Health Group. Dr Naik formed the progenitor of the Avacare Health Group in 1996.
His goal to supply the continent affordable, high-quality medical goods and services has allowed for the growth of the Avacare Health Group to what it is today. With over 30 years of experience, Dr Naik brings deep expertise to the African pharma space.
Dr Naik’s leadership continues to take the Avacare Health Group to new heights.
An anaesthesiologist by profession, Dr Vikramkumar Naik started his career at the coalface, working in severely under-resourced African hospitals. His experiences there motivated his ambitious but strategic vision for a healthier continent.
It was clear that Africa required high-quality but affordable medical goods and services. Since then, he’s dedicated his life to achieving that goal.
His approachable leadership style continues to bring people together, which, in turn, fosters more leaders to pass on his unifying ethos. Thanks to Dr Naik, our visionary leaders and the commitment of our staff and partners, we turn ideas into results, translate dreams into reality and transform challenges into success.
