Africa HR Solutions is redefining medical insurance in Africa with Unisure

medical insurance in Africa

If you have ever thought that medical insurance in Africa was something like a labyrinth, or a necessary evil one had to endure to get coverage for one’s employees… Then you are not the only one, far from it!

Challenges of Medical Insurance in Africa

Finding comprehensive medical coverage

It is already difficult enough to find an insurer that offers comprehensive coverage (including dental and optical benefits, for example) at mostly reasonable prices… but now, if you are looking for more extensive coverage (including maternity benefits and superior outpatient coverage, for example), you might find the task almost impossible.

Pan-African medical insurance coverage

To that, add health coverage in multiple African countries, and you face the unattractive prospect of endless bureaucracy and hair-raising prices.

We have noted these grievances at Africa HR Solutions. We understand how difficult and pricey it is to ensure that your team is appropriately covered – especially in countries where the national health system is not as developed, and private healthcare is not just an option, but an imperative.  

This is why Africa HR Solutions is now partnering with renowned global insurer Unisure: to change the world of medical insurance in Africa as you know it.

Africa HR Solutions & Unisure: how our offer can help you

Streamlined health insurance in Africa

Our new service streamlines all your health insurance needs, making it easier than ever to cover your employees—rather than having to deal with multiple insurance firms in the various African countries you operate in.

Better health benefits also give workers more incentives to join your business and prolong their employment.

Comprehensive medical insurance offer

No more bargaining and luck-based searches for comprehensive medical insurance covers! We bring you truly extensive medical insurance cover, including dental and optical benefits, in-patient and out-patient coverage, and more… And if you also want to give employees the ability to hand-pick their health plans, you can!

Customizable health plan

The health plans that your staff members have will be as distinct as their demands. To better meet your demands and financial situation, we provide 5 distinct plans, each with varying levels of coverage.


Novel advantages

You have the freedom to mix and match benefits (dental, in- and out-patient treatment, etc.) with our health insurance plans. Our flexible excess structures enable you to customize your plan to have no excess at all or to have any amount of excess you wish for.

Adaptable schemes

The final product’s cost and structure are entirely under your control. How? Thanks to the flexibility of choosing optional features, you may create an insurance plan that meets your needs and preferences without breaking the bank.


Worldwide coverage

Barring a few exceptions, our partnership with Unisure enables us to provide coverage anywhere in the world. What does this signify? It implies that your staff members may travel with peace of mind, knowing that they will be taken care of in the event of an illness or injury. It also saves you money as an employer on regular travel and international health insurance coverage.

How can you make the most of these offers?

These advantageous medical insurance offers are exclusively available through Africa HR Solutions – the leading EOR (Employer of Record) and one of the top PEOs (Professional Employer Organization) and payroll providers across Africa.
