April 2008 will see a new logo for the health insurer, worldwide.
The group now has a collection of insurers around the world. With a few local exceptions, such as IHI in Scandinavia and Sanitas in Spain, all companies will start with Bupa.Bupa Middle East will be rebranded Bupa Arabia.
It will take a while for all websites and literature (and computer spellcheckers) to be changed.
