dc.description.abstract This brief draws on country studies from around the world to illustrate how the pharmaceutical industry can be further developed in African countries. Building the knowledge base and strengthening linkages between knowledge producers and users is critical in shaping the direction of development. The role of public policy in supporting the continued growth of the African pharmaceutical manufacturing sector is emphasized. Thirty-seven countries in sub-Saharan Africa are engaged in pharmaceutical manufacturing supplying about 30% of the local market. South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, and Ghana have substantial pharmaceutical manufacturing plants. en
