In May 2011, the African Leaders’ Malaria Alliance (ALMA), the Global Fund, the Medicines for Malaria Venture (MMV), and the Roll Back Malaria Partnership sponsored a Forum for Africa-based Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Potential Investors in Nairobi. It aimed to bring together manufacturers and potential investors or technical collaborators and facilitate communication between them, with the aim of stimulating the development of a world class pharmaceutical manufacturing industry in Africa.
In preparation for the Forum, TropMed Pharma Consulting was asked to prepare a pre-read “Setting the Scene” for the Forum. It was a neutral and fact-based summary of the current manufacturing situation, the challenges facing an African industry, and aimed to act as a starting point for discussion, using antimalarials drugs (and ACTs specifically) to illustrate the situation.
