Potential Zimbabwe Healthcare Savings

  • Zimbabwe annually spends more than $400 million on health care (based on 2019 budget figures).
  • 25% of all health care spending comes out of pocket (OOP).
  • With a conservative roll-out of a medical cannabis program, Zimbabwe could reduce health-care spends by $10 million by its fifth year.
  • Based on a 10% reduction of health-care spends seen in other countries, medical cannabis could potentially reduce Zimbabwe’s by more than $40 million annually.
