exphar About


Exphar, a winning team !

Talented women and men ...

Performing and innovating, Exphar has imposed a new style in the pharmaceutical world.

Export minded, we are mainly based in the developing countries, where we give the best part of our talent. 
Whether in Africa or Asia, we always take into account the economic realities and sanitary conditions of the concerned population.

To conciliate the notion of profit with this of social dimension was a very daring bet. And we have achieved this bet with the help of our exlusive agents, distributors and our promotion team. Today we are a leading player in Health in sub-Saharan Africa.
