Dawa Group


With the fast changing environmental factors and lifestyles of people in Africa, there have been corresponding changes in the nature and magnitude of health challenges that the people have had to grapple with.

Dawa Limited, the leading manufacturer of human medicine in East Africa, has over the years strived to help people cope with the myriad of health challenges, and empowering people to live happier and more productive lives. In doing this, the company has aligned its products and manufacturing processes to cope with rising demands for specialised medications.

Some of the areas in which we have played a leading role in healthcare in Africa include:

The proven effectiveness of our products has seen us pre-qualified to manufacture for, and supply to some of the leading local and regional healthcare institutions such as meds, dod, khn, mtrh, and ngo’s like icrc, among others.

Malaria is one of the leading causes of avoidable deaths in both adults and children in Africa. Spread through bites by infected Anopheles mosquitoes, the disease is most common in warm and swampy areas, especially around Lake Victoria, and in coastal lowlands.

To ease the region’s burden of malaria, our company has dedicated production lines for anti-malaria drugs. We are the leading suppliers of antimalarial drugs for children and adults, to public, mission, and private healthcare facilities across the region.


We manufacture high-quality human medicines to help patients relieve symptoms of allergies, such as cold, dust, pollen and smoke, among others. Our product range for this purpose includes Analgesics, Antihistamines, Antiasthmatics and Expectorants.


Simple infections arising from casual grazes, hyperacidity or by micro-organisms can quickly develop into major health disasters if not treated early enough. To avoid such circumstances, Dawa Limited has a whole range of affordable responses to such and conditions that are more serious. Our range of solutions includes Antibiotics, Antiseptics and Antacids.

Other solutions within the human healthcare division include multivitamins, anthelmintics, steroids, antihypertensives, as well as hormones – for use in gynaecology.
