Meet Our CEO


Chief Executive Officer

As a company rooted in South African soil, it is our role and responsibility to support all South African citizens by supplying high-quality, affordable medicines.

We have a broad portfolio of healthcare products which extends across all therapeutic categories, ranging from consumer, over the counter (OTC), anti-retrovirals (ARVs) and chronic and acute prescription medication which we supply to our private and public sectors.

Ethicare strongly promotes the empowerment of patients through education. Through our disease awareness campaigns, we would like to reinforce the importance of maintaining a well-balanced, dynamic and fulfilling lifestyle, both physically and emotionally.

There is a stigma attached to men getting regular medical assessments. Men, like all members of a family unit, need to maintain their mental and physical health, to ensure that they can fulfil their societal and family role to the best of their ability.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the healthcare environment has faced unimaginable challenges. We have witnessed patients’ not being able to access their doctors, patients’ facing challenges accessing their medication, and hospitals’ having to postpone elective surgeries. These challenges have forced us to take novel approaches to realise our unmet needs. As an example, online consultations are now approved by healthcare authorities and more accessible to patients, while pharmacies have increased their capacity to home-deliver critical medication to patients. The importance of mental health awareness has been highlighted and support has been made available to a greater audience through online platforms.

These interventions have demonstrated our resolute approach as society to support and enhance our healthcare system.

Ethicare remains resolutely committed to contributing toward the healthcare of our country. Please join us in supporting and heightening awareness of preventable and treatable healthcare issues experienced by South African citizens.

Kind regards
Mike Engelbrecht
Ethicare CEO
