Mohammed Abou-El Ela – General Manager Middle East, Gulf and NE Africa, Fresenius Kabi, Egypt
Fresenius Kabi’s general manager for the MENA region discusses evolving attitudes towards clinical nutrition for critically ill patients and Egypt’s positioning as a knowledge center and source of medical professionals at the regional level.
Fresenius is the undisputed provider of critical care worldwide. What products do you offer in Egypt and what kind of competition is the company facing from local as well as international players?
Within clinical nutrition, Fresenius Kabi is one of the few companies worldwide to offer parenteral nutrition (administered intravenously) and enteral nutrition (administered as sip or tube feed via the gastrointestinal tract), as well as nutrition pumps and infusion disposables. Here in Egypt our product portfolio focuses on intravenous generic drugs, infusion therapies and clinical nutrition products as well as the medical devices for administering these products.
