Making life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs

Making life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs

Coloplast in South Africa

On the 1st October and shortly after the first democratic elections in 1994, Coloplast opened a representative office in South Africa. 10 years later the South African operation achieved subsidiary status.


A simple solution with great significance

A year ago, Coloplast Care launched in line with Coloplast MVV, staying true to Elise's original mission: making life easier for people living with stomas.


Today, our business includes Ostomy, Continence and Advanced Wound care. In all these areas, we are guided by Elise's passion and commitment. Like her, we work closely with people who have intimate healthcare needs. We listen to their needs and respond with products and services that make their lives easier.


Coloplast complies with and take seriously our responsibilities with respect to the Consumer Protection Act. We also ensure that we have an education platform within the industry to ensure that both healthcare professionals and end-users of our products are developed and that their lives are made easier. Additionally, Coloplast also has a nursing service, Coloplast Care, a call centre where users of our products can connect with an appliance specialist and Bags of Hope, a project operated in partnership with the QuadPara Association of South Africa that aids people with Spinal Cord Injuries

Mission and Values

Mission: Making life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs

Coloplast develops products and services to make life easier for people with deeply personal and private medical conditions. These conditions are often associated with trauma and taboo. The more intimate the condition, the greater the requirement to come closer to customers, understand their world and develop solutions that are sensitive to their special needs. We call this Intimate Healthcare.


Our mission statement: Making life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs

Closeness to all customers makes this possible. We listen to better understand needs, and respond by finding new ways to do things better together. We lead the way by bringing the best ideas first and fast to market in the form of medical devices and service solutions. 

Deeply private and personal medical conditions are our focus. Our passion to make a real difference to people’s lives is what drives and unites us. Our culture supports high ambitions, and releases the full potential of our own people to achieve them.
We welcome the broader responsibility that comes with leadership - a responsibility to the environment, to society, to our shareholders, and to act with integrity in all we do.
