Description

The African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD), DFS Africa and key stakeholders including the Consortium of Partners (in support of the PMPA) is convening the Africa Pharma Conference in Nairobi (2020) to focus on issues and policies that will facilitate sustainable development of regional hubs in best practices. Ideas and initiatives around regional centres of excellence will be explored and this will constitute the foundation required for increased access to financial investments, technology and cross-continental capacity development for the pharmaceutical sector and allied ecosystem.

Following the successful Africa Pharma Conference 2019 held in Johannesburg, the 2020 conference promises to be even more informative and a critical hub of ideas and solutions to grow the Africa Pharma sector.
