Alongside health practitioners and pharmaceuticals, medical technology (medtech) forms the basis of quality healthcare. The South African Medical Technology Industry Association (SAMED) was founded in 1985 and is committed to advancing patient care through medtech.
We work together with our members to build collective, objective and credible platforms to share knowledge and engage with stakeholders, and we support our members in growing a sustainable and ethical medtech industry that enhances patient access to innovative solutions.
Through our various committees we promote the interests, knowledge and expertise of our members, increase the visibility, credibility and standing of the medtech industry, advocate to inform policy and improve market access. We hold regular events, training courses and pursue collaborations to share market trends, stimulate best practice and work towards regulatory and industry harmonisation.
SAMED regards transformation as an economic and social imperative. We are committed to transformation and believe we can drive meaningful and sustainable change as an industry body. We strive to create an eco-system that gives our members tools to enable them to transform their companies. We call on our members and partners to participate in our transformation journey.
SAMED works with various local and international agencies and platforms to build a strong medical technology sector.
