The National Drug Policy (NDP) for Namibia was launched in November 1998, after having been approved by Cabinet. The policy addresses identified problems and priority areas for development of the public and private pharmaceutical sectors. Clear strategies are laid down determining how to achieve the stated policy objectives.
To facilitate policy implementation the requirement of formulating and adopting the National Pharmaceutical Master Plan (NPMP) is included in the second last section of the NDP. This plan should determine in more detail how the policy objectives will be achieved, which activities to be done by whom, when, and with what funds and resources.
It should also serve as a project document to facilitate the soliciting of financial and technical co-operation funds where required.
