Zusatztext " Making Medicines in Africa comes at just the right time to bring evidence into the often heated debate about local pharmaceutical production in African countries. Scientific data complemented by insider knowledge point the way to achieving better access to health and economic sustainability through local manufacturing. This book is a milestone and will surely become the first standard work on local African production. Worth reading every single page!" - Christoph Bonsmann! Action Medeor! Germany "The production of pharmaceuticals has implications for health! industrialization! and social and economic development. This delightful book offers carefully crafted case studies of these important issues in the case of sub-Saharan Africa! presenting a way of thinking about pharmaceutical industrial development as a critical element of strategies for addressing health needs! and showing how regulatory capabilities can affect trajectories of pharmaceutical development and the extent to which industrial development is beneficial for health systems." - Ken Shadlen! London School of Economics! UK "There is now widespread consensus that local pharmaceutical production has an important role to play in enhancing access to essential good quality medicines! contributing to the health of everyone living in Africa! and to the local economies. Multi-stakeholder cooperation is critical to this agenda! and this book explores the challenges! arguing clearly the imperative for investment in a quality! competitive! Africa-based pharmaceutical industry." - Miles Mudzviti! PharmaAfrica "This book is an important contribution to the ongoing international debate as to whether further stimulating sustainable production of high quality pharmaceuticals in Africa has potential to advance industrial development and public health objectives alike. A compelling case is made for the value of Africa-based initiatives that seek to strengthen local capabilities for medicines manufacturing as one means of improving access to badly needed drugs." - Jürgen Reinhardt!

The importance of the pharmaceutical industry in Sub-Saharan Africa, its claim to policy priority, is rooted in the vast unmet health needs of the sub-continent. Making Medicines in Africa is a collective endeavour, by a group of contributors with a strong African and more broadly Southern presence, to find ways to link technological development, investment and industrial growth in pharmaceuticals to improve access to essential good quality medicines, as part of moving towards universal access to competent health care in Africa. The authors aim to shift the emphasis in international debate and initiatives towards sustained Africa-based and African-led initiatives to tackle this huge challenge. Without the technological, industrial, intellectual, organisational and research-related capabilities associated with competent pharmaceutical production, and without policies that pull the industrial sectors towards serving local health needs, the African sub-continent cannot generate the resources to tackle its populations' needs and demands.

This book is open access under a CC-BY license. The importance of the pharmaceutical industry in Sub-Saharan Africa, its claim to policy priority, is rooted in the vast unmet health needs of the sub-continent. Making Medicines in Africa is a collective endeavour, by a group of contributors with a strong African and more broadly Southern presence, to find ways to link technological development, investment and industrial growth in pharmaceuticals to improve access to essential good quality medicines, as part of moving towards universal access to competent health care in Africa.
