DKSH and Pharmanovia Partner to Respond to Therapeutic Needs in Southeast Asia

DKSH will support Lifecycle management firm Pharmanovia in its mission to bring important medication to patients across Southeast Asia. 

London, UK / Bangkok, TH - 11 July, 2022 – DKSH, a leading partner for healthcare companies seeking to grow their business in Asia and beyond, has partnered with life cycle management company Pharmanovia, to bring high-quality pharmaceutical products to patients across the Asia Pacific. 

Partnering in Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, and the Philippines, the two companies seek to solidify brand presence, grow market share, and ultimately improve patient health outcomes in Southeast Asia.

DKSH will support Pharmanovia by building dedicated sales and marketing teams on the ground in Asia and manage product distribution in the markets. The firm’s experienced teams and broad distribution network will ensure Pharmanovia’s products reach modern trade, traditional trade, hospitals, clinics, other medical channels, and patients in need across the region.

Pharmanovia’s mission is to progress iconic medicines for the benefit of patient health. As brand owners of some of the world’s most recognizable brands, Pharmanovia’s aim is not only to revitalize the sales and marketing of iconic brands and pharmaceutical products but also to re-engineer the products and develop new delivery systems, answering the therapeutic needs of both doctors and patients. 

Dimitri Pimbert, General Manager APAC, Pharmanovia, commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with DKSH as part of our ongoing international expansion and our mission to increase access to drugs across the world. The breadth of medicines available in Southeast Asia is increasing, but more attention and resources need to be dedicated to revitalizing existing medicines and ensuring they are accessible to all within the region. We are confident in DKSH's ability to support us in this goal. Their strong regional footprint in Asia, as well as their marketing and sales expertise should help to further strengthen Pharmanovia’s brands and its continued growth.”
