3D view of the project (DR)

The Polyclinique de l’Ouest Ltée, in Mauritius, will receive a 60 million dollar fund from the Malagasy group Filatex, as well as the investment company GRIT, listed on the London stock exchange, and the Gateway Real Estate fund, which is involved in real estate investment in Africa. This major investment will enable the construction of two buildings dedicated to the fight against cancer in this polyclinic, which was created and is directed by Dr. Zouberr Joomaye, who was also the government spokesperson for the Covid-19 health committee.

After real estate, energy and trade, the Filatex group is now expanding into a new sector where it was previously lacking: health. This investment should develop a sector in which Mauritius is known: medical tourism. Hasnaine Yavarhoussen, CEO of Filatex explains: “Health is a sector of the future in Africa, as much as food security. Cancer is a problem in Mauritius. But the objective is also to explore medical tourism, with patients coming from Madagascar and the Seychelles.
