Our History

1981

Shiraz Virji opens the first wholesale Shalina pharmacy in Kinshasa, DRC, under the name of Shalina Healthcare Ltd. The Company develops the concept of making low cost generic pharmaceutical products available to the general market. This is a market where previously only expensive branded drugs had been available to those few who could afford it. The model was based on producing quality products at affordable prices and making them available through a strong distribution network.
