Localisation of Medical Manufacturing in Africa

Localisation of Medical Manufacturing in Africa (LoMMiA) Research Report

The Localisation of Medical Manufacturing in Africa (LoMMiA) Research Report, a first of its kind, maps the medical manufacturing footprint of the African continent in order to assess the potential of this industry to meet multiple developmental and health-security goals through localisation.

The  Report, commissioned by the IEJ, provides insights into the political economy of the medical manufacturing industry and makes relevant policy recommendations that locate the state, regulators, researchers, development finance institutions, and medical and pharmaceutical stakeholders in the developmental role that they can play.
