The study established several responses by AAR to the changes in the business environment it operates in. New products to cater for all income group have been developed and the company has been carrying out public relation exercises to communicate this. AAR has restructured resulting in the formation of the Holding Company and nine subsidiary companies. Technology has been enhanced with the acquisition of new software. AAR has not adequately responded to the changes and challenges it is facing in the external environment because it wants to increase both the scope of its products to cover HIV and pre-existing conditions and its geographical Span. It hopes to improve its service delivery and develop even more affordable products.
