SESSION IN FRENCH

The DRC’s healthcare industry has entered a new era. Private insurance companies can now operate in-country and in doing so are delivering a competitive service to industrial users which prior to 2019 had access only to a state-owned entity.

The benefits of this change are significant with tax incentives, staff retention and improved employee well-being featuring as key advantages.

In this session, sponsored by Cigna Hollard, our expert panellists will uncover the value-add that the recently restructured insurance sector can bring to mining operations in the DRC. With their extensive international experience in the mining sector, together with their partnership with local, well-established Société Financière d’Assurance (SFA), Cigna Hollard is well-placed to give insights on the healthcare needs of the DRC’s mining industry – today and moving forward into the future.
