Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plan of Africa (PMPA)
At a meeting in Abuja in 2005, the African Union Heads of Government recognized the challenges facing the African continent with regards to Health specifically access to medicines. The outcome of several engagements to try and address these challenges was the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plan for Africa (PMPA).
The African Union Commission and United Nations Industrial Development Organization have been working on finalising the Business Plan to support the implementation of the PMPA. It is planned that the business plan will be endorsed by the Heads of State Meeting in July 2012.
SAGMA has participated in the Technical Committee for the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plan For Africa in December 2011 and May 2012. This affords SAGMA the opportunity to voice the needs of the industry in the finalisation of the Business Plan.
