Africa produces less than 2% of the medicines it consumes. Therefore working on creating an enabling environment encouraging all investors to invest in pharmaceuticals is important. Therefore, we all need to utilize the African Continental Free Trade Area to boost the development of the African pharmaceutical industry and intra-African trade in pharmaceuticals.

We recognise it is only by harnessing the strengths, the resources, the expertise of the private sector, coupled with additional investment by government, that we can uphold the current gains and achieve lasting and sustainable health solutions in Africa.
