Building Quality-assured Manufacturing Capacity in Nigeria - WHO Prequalification. (WHO Drug Information Vol. 28, No. 4, 2014)
(2015; 6 pages)

Abstract

As a fast growing economy and large provider of goods and services to countries in the region, Nigeria is poised to expand its pharmaceutical production to achieve self-sufficiency in essential medicines and compete on regional and global markets. To this end, government health authorities and local manufacturers requested WHO support and technical assistance to prequalify several locally produced medicines, as a way to fast-track the building of local capacity to manufacture medicines according to international quality standards. An integral part of the process is the strengthening of national regulatory capacity to enforce these standards on an ongoing basis.
