Consumer health in South Africa recorded strong growth in current value terms in 2017, albeit slower than in previous years. Access to information and a widening product range continued to fuel the self-medication trend. The unreliable public health system, requiring patients to wait for a long time, and the fact that the majority of South Africans do not have access to private healthcare services are further strengthening the self-medication trend.
